Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise
is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types.
Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Moses Chiropractic knows our West Palm Beach
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. Moses 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)
Researchers find that there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity done just
two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Moses Chiropractic recommends
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
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 benefit
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing
the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
Moses Chiropractic will who you how to do them so you
can experience the best possible back pain relief.
Moses Chiropractic is with you, our West Palm Beach back pain patient, through
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an extra such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Moses Chiropractic chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Moses Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
least minimize future occurrences. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s giving it. (6) West Palm Beach chiropractic
patients at Moses Chiropractic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
