Effective Auburn Back Pain Exercise: Bird Dog

Exercise for back pain: a common recommendation with good reason. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. individualizes the proper back pain exercises for each Auburn back pain sufferer visiting Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to maximize back pain relief, strengthen the supporting muscles like the erector spinae and multifidus, and regain function. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. also tries to find exercises that are simple, effective in numerous ways like the “bird dog” movement!


Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the same way. There are many factors that contribute to their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be considered individually as your Auburn chiropractor always tries to do. It’s a known fact that back muscle function differs from a chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Distinctions can be found via a thorough examination which Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. does quite well. The exam discoveries help guide an individual treatment plan with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you will be treated like the individual you are at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.!


Exercise is a frequent recommendation for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published papers on the usefulness of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its impact was limited for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. thinks our Auburn chiropractic patients would concur that benefits of any type like this for a condition that is said to be the foremost cause of disability around the world for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in direct healthcare expense and lost productivity, are valuable to {{seek with a little exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain


Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain yet are so essential 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 hands and knees, stretching the left leg and right arm out level with the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side.
