Exercise is effective and helpful. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing
when they do their exercises. The Novelli Wellness Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Buffalo, NY patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. The Novelli Wellness Center knows this isn’t good for
our Buffalo, NY 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)
One article shares that there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced their
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a
powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. It is better not to smoke.) (2) The Novelli Wellness Center presents
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own bedroom 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 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 Novelli Wellness Center will who you how to do them so you
can experience the most possible back pain relief.
The Novelli Wellness Center is with you, our Buffalo, NY back pain patient, during
your healing process 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 suggested
over many other approaches. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
The Novelli Wellness Center attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at
least diminish the chances of 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. (6) Buffalo, NY chiropractic
patients at The Novelli Wellness Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
