So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised
or leads a sedentary life, it might
be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic would never push our
Eugene back pain patients to prep for a
marathon, but Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the
mailbox! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic promotes simple exercise to our
Eugene back pain patients as part of the comprehensive
Eugene chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.
WHY EXERCISE FOR Eugene BACK PAIN RELIEF?
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands that exercise (along
with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation
program of patients who have gone through Eugene
back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg
pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3
month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise
care. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses exercise and
spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to relieve
Eugene back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back
surgery by reducing the back pain symptom
HOW DOES EXERCISE HELP Eugene BACK PAIN?
Exercise is a possible treatment for Eugene
low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How?
Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of
cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance
the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to 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 sensation of pain and inflammation related to
low back pain. Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Eugene
back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be
active, to the level they can. Start small. Simple
stabilization exercises increased function, prevented
fatigue and improved transverse abdominis
contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recommends just taking a walk to the end of the
driveway or corner then increasing the distance a bit
each trip. Running races isn’t required! Eugene
back pain patients see the change!
