Exercise and back pain: what a pair!
Chiropractic Solutions personalizes the most
appropriate back pain exercises for each San Jose back pain
sufferer visiting Chiropractic Solutions to maximize back pain relief, strengthen the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and recoup function. Chiropractic Solutions
also gives every effort to find exercises that are simple,
effective in numerous ways like the “bird dog” move!
INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the
same way. There are numerous factors that contribute
to their back pain state. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be considered individually as your
San Jose chiropractor always tries to do. It’s well-known that back muscle function varies from one chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Differences
can be found via a thorough examination which Chiropractic Solutions is
quite good at! The exam discoveries help mold
an individual treatment plan
with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you
will be treated like the individual you are at Chiropractic Solutions!
WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a common suggestion
for back pain patients…and for 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 effect was limited
for function, but it enhanced pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Chiropractic Solutions thinks our San Jose
chiropractic patients would agree that benefits of
any sort like this for a condition that is reportedly the leading cause of disability around
the world for the past three decades or so, costing much in
direct healthcare expense in addition to lost productivity,
are worth seeking with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain.
ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG
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 and
strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by starting on hands and knees, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel
to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Talk with Chiropractic Solutions before beginning any exercise
though to be sure it’s the right one for you!
