Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Tarrytown Chiropractic knows our Tarrytown chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Tarrytown Chiropractic doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have weaker muscles? 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)

One article shares that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity performed just two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain.  Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Tarrytown Chiropractic presents simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Tarrytown Chiropractic will who you how to do them so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Tarrytown Chiropractic is with you, our Tarrytown back pain patient, during your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is an additional such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working with 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 Tarrytown Chiropractic chooses to use.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5) Tarrytown Chiropractic strives to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at least diminish the chances of future occurrences. A survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Tarrytown chiropractic patients at Tarrytown Chiropractic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
