Exercise is effective and helpful. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows our Millville
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. Wilson Family 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, shares that smoking is also a
powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic recommends
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own home 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 increasing your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective!
Wilson Family Chiropractic will share them with you so you
can feel the most possible back pain relief.
Wilson Family Chiropractic is with you, our Millville back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
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 types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Wilson Family Chiropractic chooses to use.
The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment
plan enriches the positives of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
Wilson Family Chiropractic attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who attended a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with going to the
class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to share the material. (6) Millville chiropractic
patients at Wilson Family Chiropractic are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
