Exercise. It’s not a dirty word! It’s genuinely a very useful word, specifically when it comes to back pain relief.
You know how you feel when your back hurts. It’s no fun. It slows you down. Back pain interferes with your life. Two-thirds of adults endure non-specific low back pain at some point in their lives (1), so you are one of many in Southern New Hampshire with back pain. That probably isn’t too comforting, but New Hampshire Spine and Sport is!
New Hampshire Spine and Sport helps back pain go away, but keeping it away is a group project. Come to your Southern New Hampshire chiropractic appointments. Be careful bending, lifting and twisting. Eat nutritionally. Exercise.
How? And what exercises are good to relieve and control back pain? Well, a new article just came out about core stabilization exercise. Core exercises were discovered to be more effective to reduce back pain and better function because they decrease disability in patients who have non-specific low back pain. These core stabilization exercises were compared to conventional exercises. (inani) So ready to exercise your core? Awesome!
So what are core stabilization exercises? These exercises focus on the middle muscles of your abdomen. These muscles actually pack in around your spinal cord and spine. (Your spine is actually in the middle of your body, not at the "back" as it is often thought!) The "core" is a group of muscles made up of transversus abdominus, multifidus, diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles. These all have to work together to allow stability and keep you moving painfree. You want these core muscles to be tight and supportive.
There is a variety of core stabilization exercises at your disposal. The ball ones can be a bit more fun. If you don’t have a ball, floor based core exercises work just fine.
So chat with your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor at your next appointment, and we’ll check out your core exercise routine. Let’s be sure you’re helping your back be strong and painfree. Contact New Hampshire Spine and Sport today.
