Effective Murfreesboro Back Pain Exercise: Bird Dog

Exercise for back pain: a common recommendation with good reason. Most Chiropractic Clinic individualizes the most appropriate back pain exercises for each Murfreesboro back pain sufferer visiting Most Chiropractic Clinic to maximize back pain relief, bolster the supporting muscles like the erector spinae and multifidus, and reclaim function. Most Chiropractic Clinic also tries to find exercises that are simple, effective in a variety of ways like the “bird dog” move!


Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the same way. There are many factors that impact their back pain status. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be considered individually as your Murfreesboro chiropractor strives to do. It’s a known fact that back muscle function varies from one chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Differences can be found from a thorough examination which Most Chiropractic Clinic is quite good at! The exam discoveries help mold an individual treatment plan with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you will be treated like the individual you are at Most Chiropractic Clinic!


Exercise is a regular suggestion for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published papers on the effectiveness of exercise revealed that exercise was likely effective for chronic low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its effect was small for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic thinks our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients would be in agreement that benefits of any type like this for a condition that is reported to be the top cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in direct healthcare expense as well as lost productivity, are valuable to {{pursue with a little exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain


Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often grow weak with back pain yet are so important for stability.  Bird-dog (aka quadruped opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by getting on all fours: knees and hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Talk with Most Chiropractic Clinic before starting any exercise though to be sure it’s the right one for you!
