Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. 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. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows our West Des Moines chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have weaker muscles? 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 there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity done 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’s best not to smoke.) (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

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 tough; they’re just effective! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa will share them with you so you can feel the most possible back pain relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is with you, our West Des Moines back pain patient, throughout your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is another 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 types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Executive Chiropractic of Iowa chooses to use.

The addition of 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa strives to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at least diminish the chances of future occurrences. A survey of patients who went to 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) West Des Moines chiropractic patients at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
