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. Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows our Ottawa 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. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows this isn’t good for our Ottawa 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)

Researchers find that doing a little exercise does a lot! 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider recommends simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice the difference these make!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain 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) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider will share them with you so you can feel the most possible back pain relief. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is with you, our Ottawa back pain patient, during 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 handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other approaches. (4) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

Adding 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 take care of him/herself. (5) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider 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. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office. Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to present it.
