Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows this isn’t good for
our San Jose back pain patients! 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 reduced the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions recommends
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
work.; they’re just effective!]24] McMurray

manipulation that McMurray Chiropractic Solutions chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions tries to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
