Fort Wayne Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

June 26, 2018

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc would never press our Fort Wayne back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encourages simple exercise to our Fort Wayne back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have undergone Fort Wayne back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc uses exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to alleviate Fort Wayne back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Fort Wayne low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous 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 bother Fort Wayne back pain patients? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One specific inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Fort Wayne back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Start small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, stopped fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recommends just taking a walk to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! Fort Wayne back pain patients observe the difference!
