Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any Fort Wayne back pain patient knows, getting relief can be a challenge. Many have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. But did you know that exercise could be an extra notch in the key to relieving your back pain? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) In other words, exercise can help ease back pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has proven to be beneficial for those who experience chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and lessen strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure placed on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you feel due to bad posture or poor habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps advance healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc combines Cox® Technic spinal manipulation that reduces intradiscal pressures (Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. William Hoffman on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes the Cox® Technic and its research showing drops in intradiscal pressure.) with exercises that are shown to reduce pain for optimal patient outcomes.


It is significant to be aware that when beginning an exercise program for Fort Wayne back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually increase intensity over time as your body adapts. It’s also important to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping because these can put extra strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been shown to be useful in decreasing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Fort Wayne back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc as researchers write that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about suitable exercises to help their conditions.
