Relieving Exercise for Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief

August 15, 2017

“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 due to Fort Wayne spinal stenosis or a Fort Wayne disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our joint effort: Fort Wayne 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 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 address 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 good at arranging for our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients!

Fort Wayne BACK PAIN

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 so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak abs and stubborn low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can offer you some individualized 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 stuck with these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is ready to be your community!


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


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise commencing one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more pronounced 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.
