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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows our Toronto chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered their risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It’s best not to smoke.) (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre presents simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom 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 affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre will share them with you so you can attain the best possible back pain relief. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is with you, our Toronto back pain patient, through 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 suggested over many other types of care. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 added to the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre strives to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent 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 giving it. (6) Toronto chiropractic patients at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!

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 are able to contribute to its not upsetting you much in the future with exercise.
