Don’t tell Me I Need to do More Exercises! (or What More Exercises?)

It is no secret that core stability is a good idea and plays an integral role in helping people recover from and prevent back pain.

Unfortunately, all too often, despite best efforts, the exercises do not help. Sometimes, they can even make the pain worse. There may be a good reason for this. However, you will likely need to be examined by a qualified health care professional to see if this is the case.

If you have ever worked with a computer, you may have heard the expression “garbage in, garbage out.” If the input into the system is poor, then the output will be just as poor. The same holds true for the human body.

If you are experiencing pain or if the muscles, bones, and joints of the back are not functioning correctly then the nerves coming from the back give this input back to the brain (“Garbage in”). In response, the brain will send the wrong signals back down to the muscles of the back (“Garbage out”). The resulting poor control of the back muscles results in frustration because either you don’t get anywhere with your back exercises, or you even feel that your pain is getting worse.

National Spine & Wellness’ 3 Step Treatment Plan

Our care involves the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders
of the muscles, bones, and joints, especially the spine. Your first visit to National
Spine & Wellness is dedicated to learning about the history of your pain and how
it impacts your daily life.

The information we gather during your initial assessment is used to create a 3-
step treatment plan.

Step One: Pain Relief

Did you know that manual therapy is one of only very few treatments science has proven to be the most effective for relieving your back and neck pain? Our team are experts at this treatment but also understand that this isn’t all you may need to get better.

They also work collaboratively with your health care team to get you out of pain and get you moving in a safe, controlled fashion.

Step Two: Rebuild Strength & Agility

Ask yourself, if you were 100% what would you be doing?

That is the question we put to you first and foremost so we can customize your treatment plan.

Once your pain begins to go away we empower you to gain the knowledge, understanding, and tools to build your resiliency to get back to the activities you love.

Step Three: Maintain & Improve

By using a wellness model customized to your specific needs, we can give you the knowledge and tools to maintain and improve your health in a wellness model. Once the problem that was causing your symptoms is corrected, we will also work with you to learn ways to prevent the pain from returning.

The goal of our care is to offer preventative maintenance for pain-free living.
