Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Auburn back pain sufferers particularly for Auburn post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a remarkable reduction in pain and reoperation rate states a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years of age. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain.

It's part of the whole Auburn treatment plan of chiropractic care.
