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. 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 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 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 work. 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 need.

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!
