“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
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.

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!
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. Chiropractic Associates will help you explore
the best exercise choice for you!
