Relieving Exercise for Plainville Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Layden Chiropractic hears you! Layden Chiropractic knows your back hurts. Many Plainville chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Plainville back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Plainville spinal stenosis or a Plainville disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our joint effort: Plainville chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain have more fatty areas and less extensor muscles on MRI. What does that mean? There is a a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Layden Chiropractic checks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.

Plainville NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief lasts up to a half-year post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Plainville pain relief treatment plans. Layden Chiropractic is good at arranging for our Plainville chiropractic patients!

Plainville BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and  increasing the efficiency of these muscles to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Layden Chiropractic can recommend you some individualized exercises that will do the trick before resorting to a surgery!

INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon exercise like walking)

Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent claudication were cared for with a home-based exercise program a supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients continued with these programs which both proved useful in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Layden Chiropractic is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Plainville back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Layden Chiropractic gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a superb alternative to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise commencing one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more marked functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain.
