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
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!
