Chicago Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or has not experienced how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Chiropractic Care would never press our Chicago back pain patients to train for a marathon, but Chiropractic Care kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Chiropractic Care encourages simple exercise to our Chicago back pain patients as part of the complete Chicago chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Chiropractic Care knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have undergone Chicago back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Chiropractic Care makes use of exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to ease Chicago back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Chicago low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain feeling in back pain sufferers. How does this bother Chicago back pain patients? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One specific inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Chicago back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises increased function, inhibited fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Chiropractic Care suggests to start by just wandering to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! Chicago back pain patients notice the difference!
