Relieving Exercise for Augusta Back Pain Relief

August 15, 2017

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic hears you! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows your back hurts. Many Augusta chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Augusta back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Augusta spinal stenosis or a Augusta disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our joint effort: Augusta 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? They have 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic looks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.


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 goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential part in Augusta pain relief treatment plans. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is good at setting these up for our Augusta chiropractic patients!


Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles 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 as an option for patients with weak ab muscles and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic can recommend you some specific 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 treated 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 kept at these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Augusta back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a superb alternative to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise starting 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.
