Auburn Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Auburn back pain understands, finding relief can be a challenge. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. 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) Namely, exercise can help decrease back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has proven to be beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and lessen strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate 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. Further, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it boosts blood circulation which helps support healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help decrease inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 valuable to be aware that when beginning an exercise program for Auburn back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adapts. It’s also important to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping because these can place additional strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven effective in reducing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Auburn back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. as researchers explain that chiropractors actively endorse (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.
