Effective Fernandina Beach Back Pain Exercise: Bird Dog

Exercise for back pain: a common suggestion with good reason. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic individualizes the most appropriate back pain exercises for each Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer visiting Amelia Chiropractic Clinic to maximize back pain relief, bolster the supporting muscles like the erector spinae and multifidus, and reclaim function. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic also tries to find exercises that are simple, effective in multiple ways like the “bird dog” movement!


Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the same way. There are many factors that impact their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be evaluated individually as your Fernandina Beach chiropractor always tries to do. It’s well-known that back muscle function differs from one chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Distinctions can be found from a thorough examination which Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is quite good at! The exam discoveries help guide an individual treatment plan with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Know with confidence that you are an individual at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic!


Exercise is a common recommendation for back pain patients…and for good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published papers on the effectiveness 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 effect was limited for function, but it enhanced pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic believes our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients would be in agreement that benefits of any type like this for a condition that is reported to be the foremost cause of disability around the world for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in direct healthcare expense in addition to 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


Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain yet are so important 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 getting on hands and knees, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side.
