Relieving Exercise for Tonawanda Back Pain Relief

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

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


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain have more fatty areas and less extensor muscles 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 showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Tonawanda 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 goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Tonawanda pain relief treatment plans. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is excellent at setting these up for our Tonawanda chiropractic patients!

Tonawanda BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were treated 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 lower abdominal muscles and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can offer you some individualized 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 kept at these programs which both proved productive in improving claudication measures similar 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 Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Tonawanda back pain sufferers crazy…with good reason! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a superb alternative to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)


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