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. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows our Fernandina Beach
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. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
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 performed just
two days a week reduces the odds of 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. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic presents
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You will see
just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective!
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic will share them with you so you
can attain the best possible back pain relief.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is with you, our Fernandina Beach 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 working
with 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 Amelia Chiropractic Clinic chooses to use.
Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment
plan enriches the good outcomes of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Fernandina Beach chiropractic
patients at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
