Exercise is good and beneficial. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Malverne Health & Wellness knows our Malverne
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Malverne Health & Wellness
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! Muscle strengthening activity done just
two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in your risk of getting back pain. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Malverne Health & Wellness 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 increasing your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective!
Malverne Health & Wellness will who you how to do them so you
can experience the most possible back pain relief.
Malverne Health & Wellness is with you, our Malverne back pain patient, during
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an extra such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Malverne Health & Wellness 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 take care of him/herself. (5)
Malverne Health & Wellness attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least curtail future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to share the material. (6) Malverne chiropractic
patients at Malverne Health & Wellness are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
