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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Vancouver patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows this isn’t good for our Vancouver back pain patients! 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 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 an influential factor in your risk of getting back pain.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own home if you like! You will see just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Vancouver Spine Care Centre will share them with you so you can feel the most possible back pain relief. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is with you, our Vancouver back pain patient, throughout your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is an extra 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 types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Vancouver Spine Care Centre chooses to use.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the positives of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 went to a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Vancouver chiropractic patients at Vancouver Spine Care Centre are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!

Schedule a Vancouver chiropractic appointment today. It’s the first step on the way to back pain relief and its prevention. You can expect much at your first visit! Your chiropractic appointment will give you a clear understanding of what caused your pain and how you might avoid its aggravation in the future with exercise.
