New Roads Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just doesn’t exercise or hasn’t 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. New Roads Chiropractic Center would never push our New Roads back pain patients to train for a marathon, but New Roads Chiropractic Center gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! New Roads Chiropractic Center promotes simple exercise to our New Roads back pain patients as part of the comprehensive New Roads chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


New Roads Chiropractic Center understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have gone through New Roads back surgery. In one case study, a patient with leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center makes use of exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to alleviate New Roads back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for New Roads low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which boost the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this bother New Roads back pain patients? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: New Roads back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises increased function, prevented fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  New Roads Chiropractic Center recommends just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races is not necessary! New Roads back pain patients see the difference!
