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. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Paramus 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. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have
weaker muscles? 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, shares that smoking is also a
powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 gain

your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center will share them with you so you
can attain the most possible back pain relief.
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is with you, our Paramus back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is another such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling 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 Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least minimize future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who attended a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with going to the
class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to share the material. (6) Paramus chiropractic
patients at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
