Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Vancouver Disc Centers 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 Disc Centers 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)

Researchers find that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered the risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Vancouver Disc Centers recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice the difference these make!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective! Vancouver Disc Centers will share them with you so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Vancouver Disc Centers 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 additional such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested over many other approaches. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Vancouver Disc Centers tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at least minimize future occurrences. A survey of patients who attended 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 Disc Centers are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
