Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows this isn’t good for our St. Francisville back pain patients!

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)

Researchers find that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered their risk for low back pain.
