Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc speculate how to get back pain patients to do suggested 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 stronger. Patients ponder why the chiropractor suggests exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor to fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma! Both the Largo chiropractor and Largo 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 recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Largo 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 how to handle back pain and neck pain are published. 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc pays attention to these in caring for Largo 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 initiate 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 report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Largo chiropractic back pain patients facing persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who did exercise found a reduction 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 – lessened low back pain disability significantly more and improved 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 Largo chiropractor be your laser pointer! Follow proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
