West Palm Beach Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any West Palm Beach back pain patient knows, finding relief can be challenging. Many have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. But did you know that exercise could be an extra notch in the key to relieving your back pain? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be moderated 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 proven itself beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and decrease strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure placed on your spine and decrease the amount of back pain you experience due to poor posture or poor habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps support healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Chiropractic Care 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 significant to note that when initiating an exercise program for West Palm Beach back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It’s also important to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping as these can put extra strain on your spine and irritate rather than help. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven helpful in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. West Palm Beach back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Chiropractic Care as researchers note that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
