Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

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 from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. 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 need.

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 addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enriches the positives of back pain rehabilitation. 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. A survey of patients who went to 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) Paramus chiropractic patients at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
