August 28, 2018

Dead bugs. Bird dogs. Superman. How do these relate to Georgetown back pain relief?  They are all recognized stabilizing exercises. Dead bugs are quite valuable in stabilizing the back muscles of back pain sufferers. Dead bug exercises help back pain suffers in strengthening their spine’s muscle support system and in that way keeping Georgetown back pain at bay. Dr. Butwell also appreciates the fact that dead bug exercises are a way back pain sufferers can help ease their back pain and hasten their heal. Chiropractic care at Dr. Butwell incorporates such helpful things!


It’s ironic that one of the more effective exercises to activate muscles is called a dead anything! The dead bug exercise is lumbar spine muscle activating. Criss-cross, single leg stretch and dead bug are often recommended to activate lumbar stabilizing muscles. They are documented to be effective right away. As a matter of fact, they are found to be helpful in both healthy persons as well as chronic low back pain sufferers in the initial exercise session. (1) Dr. Butwell values such exercises that present patients obvious improvement like that. Georgetown chiropractic back pain patients are encouraged to do additional exercise with that kind of result!


As with all Dr. Butwell does in the way of treating Georgetown back pain, patient tolerance and physical ability considered. A recent study of four stabilization exercises including the dead bug exercise concluded that a graded and appropriate lumbar stabilization exercise program customized to the individual back pain sufferer may be an effective means to strengthen back muscles. Researchers discovered that as the intensity of these stabilizing exercises increased so too did the activity of the related stabilizing muscles significantly.
