Preston Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just doesn’t exercise or hasn’t felt how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Chiropractic Associates would never push our Preston back pain patients to train for a marathon, but Chiropractic Associates gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Chiropractic Associates encourages simple exercise to our Preston back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Preston chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Chiropractic Associates knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have had Preston back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Chiropractic Associates utilizes exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve Preston back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Preston low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Preston back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Start small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, stopped fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Chiropractic Associates suggests to start by just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races isn’t required! Preston back pain patients see the difference!
