Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows our Auburn chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. doesn’t consider this helpful at all! What makes these muscles weak? 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, shares that smoking is also a powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain.  It’s best not to smoke.) (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You will see just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. will share them with you so you can attain the most possible back pain relief. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is with you, our Auburn back pain patient, throughout your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested over many other types of care. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. strives to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid 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 attended the course and 100% support of the doctor’s providing it. (6) Auburn chiropractic patients at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. are some of the most spine-smart people around!
