No one expects to injure their back when leaning over to pick up that pen in the office. We never expect work related injuries. We especially don’t expect to get injured while at the gym exercising. Injuries come in unexpected ways and at unexpected time. But regardless how or when they come, they can be very painful and limit the things we are able to do. The team at Pearson Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center are experts at getting your through these times and back on your feet quickly and with the least amount of discomfort possible.
By far the majority of people will experience back pain at some point in their life. The exact statistics are that approximately eight out of 10 people will experience it in their life. Conventional wisdom used to advise bed rest immediately after a back injury. It was thought that being still would allow your back to heal faster. We now know that if you resume your normal daily activities as soon as possible after an injury, you will recover sooner.
Likewise, as soon as you can tolerate it, it is important to begin gentle stretching and strengthening of the back muscles through appropriate exercises. Comprehensive back rehabilitation programs normally consist of both strengthening exercises as well as stretching designed to target specific muscle groups. The abdominal muscles should always be included in most regimens, as they play an crucial role in rehabilitating the back by helping to stabilize the spine.
