Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Dr. Gary Stefanick incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our New York patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Dr. Gary Stefanick doesn’t consider this helpful at all! 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)

One article shares that doing a little exercise does a lot! Muscle strengthening activity performed just two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests 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) Dr. Gary Stefanick recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice the difference these make!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Dr. Gary Stefanick will share them with you so you can attain the best possible back pain relief. Dr. Gary Stefanick is with you, our New York back pain patient, throughout your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is an extra 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) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Dr. Gary Stefanick chooses to use.

The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Dr. Gary Stefanick tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at least minimize future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who attended 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. (6) New York chiropractic patients at Dr. Gary Stefanick are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
