Relieving Exercise for Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc hears you! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows your back hurts. Many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Fort Wayne back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Fort Wayne spinal stenosis or a Fort Wayne disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our combined effort: Fort Wayne chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


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? They have a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Fort Wayne 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 6 months later. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential part in Fort Wayne pain relief treatment plans. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is excellent at arranging for our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients!

Fort Wayne BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs 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 lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have not been helped by conservative management. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can offer you some specific exercises that will be just right for you 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 stuck with these programs which both proved useful in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more effective in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Fort Wayne back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a great alternative to try to decrease back pain and improve 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 distinct functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help reduce back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will help you explore the best exercise option for you!
