Tonawanda Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Tonawanda back pain understands, finding relief can be a challenge. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. But did you know that exercise could be just the right addition to your attempts at getting back pain relief? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, links between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) In other words, exercise can help ease back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and decrease strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure exerted on your spine and lower the amount of back pain you experience due to poor posture or poor habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps promote healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help reduce inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation combines Cox® Technic spinal manipulation that reduces intradiscal pressures (Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. William Hoffman on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes the Cox® Technic and its research showing drops in intradiscal pressure.) with exercises that are shown to reduce pain for optimal patient outcomes.


It is important to note that when beginning an exercise program for Tonawanda back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adapts. It’s also valuable to choose low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping because these can put extra strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven effective in decreasing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Tonawanda back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation as researchers write that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about proper exercises for their specific conditions.
