So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised
or leads a sedentary life, it may not
be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be
a huge help. Johnson Chiropractic would never persuade our
Richmond back pain patients to prepare for a
marathon, but Johnson Chiropractic kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the
mailbox! Johnson Chiropractic encourages simple exercise to our
Richmond back pain patients as part of the complete
Richmond chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.
WHY EXERCISE FOR Richmond BACK PAIN RELIEF?
Johnson Chiropractic understands that exercise (along
with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have gone through Richmond
back surgery. In one case study, a patient with leg
pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a 3
month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise
care. (1) Johnson Chiropractic makes use of exercise and
spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to alleviate
Richmond back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back
surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom
HOW DOES EXERCISE HELP Richmond BACK PAIN?
Exercise is a potential treatment for Richmond
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 sensation in back pain
sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients are more
likely to feel more pain. One certain
inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and
the sensation of pain and inflammation related to
low back pain. Exercise helps by
controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Richmond
back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be
active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple
stabilization exercises improved function, prevented
fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis
contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3) Johnson Chiropractic recommends just strolling to the mailbox or corner then adding a little
each trip. Running races is not necessary! Richmond
back pain patients notice the change!
