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 Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic wonder how to get back pain patients to do suggested exercises. After all, 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 ponder why the chiropractor recommends exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor to fix the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Millville chiropractor and Millville 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 Millville 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 handle back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for treating 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic pays attention to these in caring for Millville back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more likely to be less active. Pain shapes 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 for women. (3) For Millville chiropractic back pain patients feeling persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who did exercise found a lessening in pain and an increase 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 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 created a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Millville chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
