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 Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
wonder 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 suggests
exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to resolve the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Montreal chiropractor and Montreal chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That’s how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know
this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Montreal back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let’s 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
in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to help acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also listed in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic pays attention to
these in caring for Montreal back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more
likely to be less active. Pain influences that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause 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 a common finding.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly
for women. (3) For Montreal chiropractic back pain patients facing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did these found a decrease 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 – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To
stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced
their form. (6) Let your Montreal chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Follow proposed
tips for how to exercise properly.
