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!
PERSONALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
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!
WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
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.
ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG
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. (3,4) Have a
