Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

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

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

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!


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 to treat 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.


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.
