Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your New York City chiropractor at Innate Wisdom
wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
speculate why the chiropractor recommends
exercises when all they desired was for the chiropractor
to fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the New York City chiropractor and New York City chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That’s how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve New York City back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to
handle back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is
in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Innate Wisdom pays attention to
these in caring for New York City back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain influences that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy
immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly
in women. (3) For New York City chiropractic back pain patients facing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did these found a reduction in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more deliverately during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your New York City chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Follow advised
tips for how to exercise properly.
