Relieving Exercise for Preston Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Chiropractic Associates hears you! Chiropractic Associates knows your back hurts. Many Preston chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Preston back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Preston spinal stenosis or a Preston disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our combined effort: Preston chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.

Preston SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN

Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Chiropractic Associates looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Preston NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief continues for up to a half-year post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important part in Preston pain relief treatment plans. Chiropractic Associates is experienced at arranging for our Preston chiropractic patients!

Preston BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Chiropractic Associates can offer you some specific exercises that will do the trick before resorting to a surgery!

INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon exercise like walking)

Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent claudication were treated with a home-based exercise program a supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients continued with these programs which both proved productive in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Chiropractic Associates is ready to be your community!

Preston NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Preston back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Chiropractic Associates gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a superb option to try to reduce back pain and improve disability. (7)

Preston POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN

Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise starting one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more marked functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain.
