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. Satterwhite Chiropractic incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Oxford patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Satterwhite Chiropractic knows this isn’t good for
our Oxford 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 doing a little exercise does a lot! 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 a
powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic recommends
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own home if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!
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 reducing
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
Satterwhite Chiropractic will who you how to do them so you
can attain the best possible back pain relief.
Satterwhite Chiropractic is with you, our Oxford back pain patient, throughout
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an additional such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other approaches. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
The addition of 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)
Satterwhite Chiropractic strives to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at
least curtail 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) Oxford chiropractic
patients at Satterwhite Chiropractic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
