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 Tarrytown chiropractor at Tarrytown Chiropractic
wonder how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
speculate why the chiropractor recommends
exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Tarrytown chiropractor and Tarrytown chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then works
together to relieve Tarrytown back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for what to do with back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
amid the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Tarrytown Chiropractic pays attention to
these in caring for Tarrytown back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more
likely to be less active. Pain influences that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set
off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly
in women. (3) For Tarrytown chiropractic back pain patients facing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who
did exercise found a reduction in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and improved 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 deliverately during exercise, researchers came
up with a unique laser pointer system that allowed
the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your Tarrytown chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Follow suggested
tips for how to exercise the right way.
