Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Moriarty Chiropractic knows this isn’t good for our Nashua 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 doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered the risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Moriarty Chiropractic offers simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity.

Moriarty Chiropractic is with you, our Nashua back pain patient, through your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.
Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working with 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 Moriarty Chiropractic chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched when back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Moriarty Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at least curtail future occurrences. A survey of patients who went to a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course and 100% support of the doctor’s providing it.
