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 there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! 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 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 affecting
the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
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
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!
