Executive Chiropractic of Iowa recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

Extension Exercise

West Des Moines back pain sufferers frequently get relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs strong back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop West Des Moines back pain is important. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in West Des Moines chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Add extension exercises into your day when your West Des Moines chiropractor tells you it is appropriate. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa can help!
