Exercise is effective and helpful. 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. Hutter Chiropractic Office incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Groton patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Hutter Chiropractic Office
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)
One article shares that doing a little exercise does a lot! 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, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Hutter Chiropractic Office presents
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit
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
Hutter Chiropractic Office will who you how to do them so you
can attain the most possible back pain relief.
Hutter Chiropractic Office is with you, our Groton back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is an additional 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 approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Hutter Chiropractic Office chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Hutter Chiropractic Office strives to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude 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) Groton chiropractic
patients at Hutter Chiropractic Office are some of the most spine-smart people around!
