New Roads Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of New Roads back pain knows, getting relief can be challenging. You may have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. But did you know that exercise could be just the right addition to your attempts at getting back pain relief? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, links between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) In other words, exercise can help reduce back pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has proven itself beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and lessen strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure exerted on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you feel due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps further healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) New Roads Chiropractic Center 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 New Roads back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adapts. It is also valuable to select low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping as these can place extra strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven useful in decreasing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. New Roads back pain patients have a great exercise coach at New Roads Chiropractic Center as researchers write that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises for their specific conditions.
