Exercise controls the immune system and its anti-inflammatory responses to drown out pain, particularly peripheral nerve injury and neuropathic pain reports a new research study. Exercise increases anti-inflammatory cytokines to promote healing and pain numbing.  Exercise on a treadmill increases the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines at the site of nerve injury.

Richmond back pain and back-related leg pain sufferers find that the addition of exercise to their Richmond chiropractic treatment plans enhances the relief they attain. In one study, chronic low back pain sufferers did better in terms of relief of pain intensity when exercise is combined with neurophysiology education.

(3) A randomized control trial of flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) for back pain relief revealed that F/D reduced back pain better than medical conservative care and physical therapy for almost all categories of back pain. One category of back pain patient – recurrent severe – demonstrated that exercise is critical to relief and prevention of recurrent back pain.
