“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Chiropractic Care hears you! Chiropractic Care knows your back
hurts. Many Chicago chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Chicago back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Chicago spinal stenosis or a Chicago disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our joint
effort: Chicago chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Chicago SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration 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 Care looks for
such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.
Chicago 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 6 months post-treatment.
(3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important
component in Chicago pain relief treatment plans.
Chiropractic Care is good at arranging for our Chicago chiropractic patients!
Chicago BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach
muscles were treated
with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). This
produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening
the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and increasing the efficiency of these muscles so that their effectiveness as spine
stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
as an option for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4)
Chiropractic Care can recommend you some individualized
exercises that will be just right for you 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 cared for 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 effective
in improving claudication measures similar to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Chiropractic Care
is ready to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some
Chicago back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Chiropractic Care
gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a
superb alternative to try to reduce back pain and improve disability. (7)
Chicago POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise starting one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more distinct
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. Chiropractic Care will help you discover
the best exercise option for you!
