Plainville Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Plainville back pain knows, finding relief can be challenging. 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, associations 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. Layden Chiropractic presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure exerted on your spine and lower the amount of back pain you feel due to poor posture or poor habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it boosts blood circulation which helps further healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Layden Chiropractic 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 note that when starting an exercise program for Plainville back pain relief, you should start gently 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 such as 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 combined with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven useful in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Plainville back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Layden Chiropractic as researchers explain that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about suitable exercises for their specific conditions.
