Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Watertown Wellness Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Watertown patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Watertown Wellness Center knows this isn’t good for our Watertown back pain patients! 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)

One article shares 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, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Watertown Wellness Center presents 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 influencing the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective! Watertown Wellness Center will share them with you so you can attain the best possible back pain relief. Watertown Wellness Center is with you, our Watertown back pain patient, during your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is an extra such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested over many other types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Watertown Wellness Center chooses to use.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the positives of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Watertown Wellness Center 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 stated 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to share the material. (6) Watertown chiropractic patients at Watertown Wellness Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
