EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more apt 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 inactivity 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 decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially in women. (3) For Ashburn chiropractic back pain patients feeling constant 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 – lessened 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 activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Ashburn chiropractor be your laser pointer! Follow proposed tips for how to exercise the right way.
