Exercise for back
pain: a common suggestion with good reason.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic individualizes the proper back pain exercises for each Fort Wayne back pain
sufferer visiting Aaron Chiropractic Clinic to maximize back pain relief, strengthen the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and regain function. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
also gives every effort to find exercises that are easy,
effective in multiple ways like the “bird dog” movement!
INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the
same way. There are numerous factors that impact their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be considered individually as your
Fort Wayne chiropractor always tries to do. It’s a
known fact that back muscle function differs from a chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Variations
can be found via a thorough examination which Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is
quite good at! The exam discoveries help mold
a personalized treatment plan with personalized exercise recommendations. (1) Know with confidence that you are

WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a frequent recommendation
for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body
and spine. A review of published research on the effectiveness
of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic
low back pain in comparison to no treatment, placebo, advice or
education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its impact was small
for function, but it enhanced pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic thinks our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients would be in agreement that benefits of
any type like this for a condition that is reported to be the leading cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in
direct healthcare expense in addition to lost productivity,
are worth seeking with some 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 important
for stability. Bird-dog (aka quadruped
opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while
strengthening both the core and the
multifidus. Start this by starting on all fours: knees and
hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out level with the floor. Hold the position for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a
