“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck)
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic hears you! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows your back
hurts. Many Eugene chiropractic patients come for just that motivation:
Eugene back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Eugene spinal stenosis or a Eugene disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our joint
effort: Eugene chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Eugene SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a
a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain bothers a patient.
(1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic looks for
such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.
Eugene NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief continues for up to a half-year later.
(3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential
component in Eugene pain relief treatment plans.
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is good at setting
these up for our Eugene chiropractic patients!
Eugene BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were cared for
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 so that their effectiveness as spine
stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
a way for patients with weak ab
muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4)
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 productive
in improving claudication measures similar to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic
is ready to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some
Eugene back pain sufferers crazy…with good reason! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic
gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a
good option to try to reduce back pain and improve disability. (7)
Eugene POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic
exercise beginning one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in 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. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will help you discover
the best exercise option for you!
