Exercise and back pain: what a pair!
Hollstrom & Associates Inc personalizes the suitable back pain exercises for each Largo back pain
sufferer visiting Hollstrom & Associates Inc to maximize back pain relief, boost the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and regain function. Hollstrom & Associates Inc
also gives every effort to find exercises that are simple,
effective in a variety of ways like the “bird dog” move!
INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the
same way. There are many factors that impact their back pain status. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be considered individually as your
Largo chiropractor strives to do. It’s well-known that back muscle function varies from a chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Variations
can be found from a thorough examination which Hollstrom & Associates Inc does quite well. The exam discoveries help guide
a personalized treatment plan with personalized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you
will be treated like the individual you are at Hollstrom & Associates Inc!
WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a common suggestion
for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body
and spine. A review of published papers on the effectiveness
of exercise revealed that exercise was likely effective for chronic
low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or
education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its effect was small
for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc thinks our Largo
chiropractic patients would concur that benefits of
any type like this for a condition that is reportedly the top cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing much in
direct healthcare expense in addition to lost productivity,
are worth seeking with a
little exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain.
ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG
Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often grow
weak with back pain yet are so valuable
for stability. Bird-dog (aka quadruped
opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while
strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by getting on hands and knees, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel
to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a
