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 bedroom 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
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.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. 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. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Watertown chiropractic
patients at Watertown Wellness Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
