Augusta Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

June 26, 2018

So simple: exercise. For a person who just doesn’t exercise or has not experienced how good it feels to exercise, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic would never press our Augusta back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic promotes simple exercise to our Augusta back pain patients as part of the complete Augusta chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have had Augusta back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic applies exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to alleviate Augusta back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Augusta low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Augusta back pain patients? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Augusta back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Start small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, stopped fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic recommends just strolling to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races isn’t required! Augusta back pain patients observe the difference!
