Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Exercise also allows the patient to take part in their healing. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows this isn’t good for our Colorado Springs back pain patients! What makes these muscles weak? Fat. With back pain comes more fat infiltration into the back muscles, muscles like the lumbar multifidus muscles which greatly influence the range of motion in lumbar spine. Fattier multifidi, less lumbar flexion. (1)

Researchers find that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced their risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It’s best not to smoke.) (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You will see just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will share them with you so you can feel the best possible back pain relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is with you, our Colorado Springs back pain patient, through your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is an additional such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR chooses to use.

The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the positives of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at least curtail future occurrences. A survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Colorado Springs chiropractic patients at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
