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. Back And Neck Care Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Severna Park patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Back And Neck Care Center
doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have
weaker muscles? 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! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in your risk of getting back pain. It’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Back And Neck Care Center presents
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Back And Neck Care Center will who you how to do them so you
can experience the best possible back pain relief.
Back And Neck Care Center is with you, our Severna Park back pain patient, through
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an additional such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other approaches. (4) Back And Neck Care Center 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 good outcomes of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
Back And Neck Care Center strives to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent 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 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) Severna Park chiropractic
patients at Back And Neck Care Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
