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 part
in their healing. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have
weaker muscles? 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! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a
powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic presents
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective!
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic will share them with you so you
can attain the most possible back pain relief.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is with you, our Fort Wayne back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is an additional such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working
with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other approaches. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least curtail future occurrences. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s providing it. (6) Fort Wayne chiropractic
patients at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
