Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

March 13, 2018

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic speculate how to get back pain patients to do recommended exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger plus decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients wonder why the chiropractor suggests exercises since all they desired was for the chiropractor to fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma! Both the Nashua chiropractor and Nashua chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations are different. (1) That’s how it is. Research shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then works together to relieve Nashua back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let us do that!


Guidelines for how to handle back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is amid the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic pays attention to these in caring for Nashua back pain.


Patients with low back pain are more likely to be less active. Pain shapes that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding. Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Nashua chiropractic back pain patients facing persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did exercise found a reduction in pain and an increase in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Nashua chiropractor be your laser pointer! Listen to suggested tips for how to exercise properly.
