So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised
or leads a sedentary life, it might
be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be
a huge help. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture would never push our
Peoria back pain patients to prep for a
marathon, but Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture gently encourages a walk to the
mailbox or down the driveway! Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture promotes simple exercise to our
Peoria back pain patients as part of the comprehensive
Peoria chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.
WHY EXERCISE FOR Peoria BACK PAIN RELIEF?
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture knows that exercise (along
with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have gone through Peoria
back surgery. In one case study, a patient with leg
pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3
month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise
care. (1) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture uses exercise and
spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to ease
Peoria back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back
surgery by lessening the back pain symptom
HOW DOES EXERCISE HELP Peoria BACK PAIN?
Exercise is a potential treatment for Peoria
low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why?
Adipose, fatty tissue releases several types of
cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens
the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated
with musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain
sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One particular
inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, produces fever and
the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to
low back pain. Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Peoria
back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be
active, to the level they can. Begin small. Simple
stabilization exercises increased function, stopped
fatigue and increased transverse abdominis
contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture recommends just wandering to the end of the
driveway or corner then increasing the distance a bit
each trip. Running races isn’t required! Peoria
back pain patients notice the change!
