Exercise and back pain: what a pair!
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office personalizes the proper back pain exercises for each Groton back pain
sufferer visiting Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office to relieve pain
best, bolster the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and reclaim function. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
also tries to find exercises that are simple,
effective in multiple ways like the “bird dog” movement!
INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the
same way. There are numerous factors that impact their back pain state. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be evaluated individually as your
Groton chiropractor always tries to do. It’s well-known that back muscle function varies from one chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Variations
can be found via a thorough examination which Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is
quite good at! The exam discoveries help create
an individual treatment plan
with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you
will be treated like the individual you are at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office!
WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a regular recommendation
for back pain patients…and for good reason. Muscles support the body
and spine. A review of published papers on the usefulness
of exercise revealed 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 enhanced pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office thinks our Groton
chiropractic patients would concur that benefits of
any type like this for a condition that is said
to be the top cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in
direct healthcare expense as well as lost productivity,
are worth seeking with a
little 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 valuable
for stability. Bird-dog (aka quadruped
opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while
strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by starting on all fours: knees and
hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel
to the floor. Hold the position for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Talk with Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office before beginning any exercise
though to be sure it’s appropriate for you!
