Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Young Chiropractic doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have weaker muscles? 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 there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity performed just two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain.

Young Chiropractic is with you, our Easley back pain patient, through your healing process with as much support as you need.
Back school is an extra such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enriches the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Young Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at least curtail future occurrences. A survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it.
