Millville Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Millville back pain understands, getting relief can be challenging. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. But did you know that exercise could be just the right addition to your attempts at getting back pain relief? 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has proven to be beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on your spine and lower the amount of back pain you feel due to bad posture or bad habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps advance healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lower inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 important to note that when initiating an exercise program for Millville back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adapts. It is also important to choose low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping because these can place additional strain on your spine and irritate rather than help. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven useful in decreasing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Millville back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Wilson Family Chiropractic as researchers explain that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about suitable exercises for their specific conditions.
