Relieving Exercise for Carrolltown Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation hears you! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows your back hurts. Many Carrolltown chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Carrolltown back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Carrolltown spinal stenosis or a Carrolltown 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: Carrolltown 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 bothers a patient. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Carrolltown 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 a half-year post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Carrolltown pain relief treatment plans. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is good at arranging for our Carrolltown chiropractic patients!

Carrolltown BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were cared for 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 ab muscles and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can recommend you some specific 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 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 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 Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Carrolltown back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a superb option to try to reduce 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 reduce back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will help you explore the best exercise choice for you!
