Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
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 doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced their
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in your risk of getting back pain. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC offers
