Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
ponder how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as
well as reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
ponder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to resolve the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the Colorado Springs chiropractor and Colorado Springs chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Colorado Springs 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 manage back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
among the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR pays attention to
these in caring for Colorado Springs back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain affects that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common.
Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially
in women. (3) For Colorado Springs chiropractic back pain patients facing constant lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did these found a lessening in pain and an increase
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
stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your Colorado Springs chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Consider using the advised
tips for how to exercise properly.
