Exercise and back pain: what a pair! Back And Neck Care Center personalizes the proper back pain exercises for each Severna Park back pain sufferer visiting Back And Neck Care Center to relieve pain best, strengthen the supporting muscles like the erector spinae and multifidus, and recoup function. Back And Neck Care Center also gives every effort to find exercises that are easy, effective in numerous ways like the “bird dog” move!


Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the same way. There are numerous factors that contribute to their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be evaluated individually as your Severna Park chiropractor always tries to do. It’s a known fact that back muscle function varies from a chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Differences can be found from a thorough examination which Back And Neck Care Center does quite well. The exam discoveries help mold an individual treatment plan with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you will be treated like the individual you are at Back And Neck Care Center!


Exercise is a regular suggestion for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published research on the effectiveness of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic low back pain in comparison to no treatment, placebo, advice or education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its impact was limited for function, but it enhanced pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Back And Neck Care Center believes our Severna Park chiropractic patients would concur that benefits of any sort like this for a condition that is said to be the leading cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing much in direct healthcare expense and lost productivity, are valuable to {{seek with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain


Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain yet are so valuable for stability.  Bird-dog (aka quadruped opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae and strengthening both the core and the multifidus. Start this by getting on all fours: knees and hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a chat with Back And Neck Care Center before starting any exercise though to be sure it’s appropriate for you!
