Carrolltown Chiropractic Treatment Plan Includes Exercise to Prevent Back Pain

Chiropractic and back pain relief go together well. (Carrolltown chiropractic services are plentiful to encourage that combo!) When your Carrolltown chiropractor tells someone about practicing as a chiropractor, the other person many times commences telling his or her own story of back pain or leg pain or sciatica or neck pain (or that of a family member)! Your Carrolltown chiropractor enjoys it! Carrolltown back pain sufferers are welcomed to come for Carrolltown chiropractic care to relieve their current back pain and pick up ways to prevent future episodes that they can use and impart to friends and family. One of the most important tips Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation relays is that exercise (the proper type for each individual) works.


Exercise works to thwart low back pain in most adults. The 12,721 patient study (NHANES) evaluated those who didn’t do any muscle strengthening activity, did it just one day a week, or did it two days a week. The outcome: exercising with muscle strengthening activities at least (or rather just) 2 days a week decreases the odds of low back pain. (Side note: Smoking impacts this. Recommendation: Do not smoke.) (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes that our Carrolltown chiropractic patients can find time twice a week for some exercise like this to reduce the risk of low back pain!


Exercise as part of the Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation works for pregnancy-related back pain lessening and prevention. A new study of findings from 11 studies of 2347 pregnant women reports that exercise reduces the risk of low back pain for pregnant women. Sick leave due to low back pain during pregnancy is decreased, too. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows our Carrolltown pregnant patients intend to do what is beneficial for their health as well as their baby’s. Exercise may be awonderful self-care/baby-care activity!


Exercise works for middle-aged employees. Muscle strength improved and low back pain declined in a 5 month study of employees who did at-home exercises. Trunk muscle strength and low back pain improved in all workers and for those with pre-existing chronic low back pain. Work ability improved, too. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation checks your strength and back pain improvement at your Carrolltown chiropractic appointments.
