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 Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
speculate how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger plus reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
speculate why the chiropractor recommends
exercises when all they desired was for the chiropractor
to resolve the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Ashburn chiropractor and Ashburn chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know
this, everyone then works
together to relieve Ashburn 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 how to manage back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
among 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn pays attention to
these in caring for Ashburn back 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 reduced 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.
