Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre speculate how to get back pain patients to do suggested exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients wonder why the chiropractor recommends exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor to resolve the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Toronto chiropractor and Toronto chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Toronto back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!

EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is among the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre carefully considers these in caring for Toronto back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain influences that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common. Researchers report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially in women. (3) For Toronto chiropractic back pain patients facing constant lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who did these found a decrease in pain and an increase in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – lessened low back pain disability significantly more and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced their form. (6) Let your Toronto chiropractor be your laser pointer! Listen to suggested tips for how to exercise the right way.
