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

Chiropractors like your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic
ponder how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to decrease 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 fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the McHenry chiropractor and McHenry chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That is how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know
this, everyone then works
together to relieve McHenry back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is
amid the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic pays attention to
these in caring for McHenry 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. Lengthy
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly
for women. (3) For McHenry chiropractic back pain patients facing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who
did these found a reduction in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more deliverately during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that allowed
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your McHenry chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Listen to suggested
tips for how to exercise properly.
