So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised
or leads a sedentary life, it may not
be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be
a huge help. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa would never push our
West Des Moines back pain patients to prep for a
marathon, but Executive Chiropractic of Iowa kindly encourages a walk to the
mailbox or down the driveway! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa promotes simple exercise to our
West Des Moines back pain patients as part of the complete
West Des Moines chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.
WHY EXERCISE FOR West Des Moines BACK PAIN RELIEF?
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows that exercise (along
with spinal manipulation!) adds to the recovery of patients who have had West Des Moines
back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg
pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a 3
month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise
care. (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa applies exercise and
spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve
West Des Moines back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back
surgery by reducing the back pain symptom
HOW DOES EXERCISE HELP West Des Moines BACK PAIN?
Exercise is a possible treatment for West Des Moines
low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why?
Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of several types of
cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which boost
the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated
with musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain
sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One particular
inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and
the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to
low back pain. Exercise helps by
controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: West Des Moines
back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be
active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple
stabilization exercises increased function, inhibited
fatigue and improved transverse abdominis
contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa recommends just strolling to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a little
each trip. Running races is not necessary! West Des Moines
back pain patients notice the difference!
