Chiropractors like your La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. After all, 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 since all they desired was for the chiropractor
to fix the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the La Grande chiropractor and La Grande chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve La Grande 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 what to do with back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
amid 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) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC pays attention to
these in caring for La Grande back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain tend 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. Lengthy
immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common.
Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly
for women. (3) For La Grande chiropractic back pain patients dealing
with unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did exercise found a decrease in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing 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 alone. (5) To
stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more deliverately during exercise, researchers came
up with a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your La Grande chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Listen to advised
tips for how to exercise properly.
