Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows our Largo chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows this isn’t good for our Largo 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)

Researchers find that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! 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 your risk of getting back pain.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice the difference these make!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Hollstrom & Associates Inc will who you how to do them so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is with you, our Largo back pain patient, throughout your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is an additional such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other types of care. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched 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 help him/herself. (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc strives to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid 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 reported 95% satisfaction with going to the class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to present it. (6) Largo chiropractic patients at Hollstrom & Associates Inc are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
