Exercise is good and beneficial. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take part
in their healing. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows our Montreal
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows this isn’t good for
our Montreal back pain patients! What makes these muscles weak? 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! Muscle strengthening activity performed just
two days a week reduces 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
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 affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic will share them with you so you
can experience the best possible back pain relief.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is with you, our Montreal back pain patient, during
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an additional such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working
with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic tries to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to present it. (6) Montreal chiropractic
patients at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
