back pain patients. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows this isn’t good for
our St. Francisville back pain patients! 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)
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. (And this

powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers
