Carrolltown Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just doesn’t exercise or hasn’t experienced how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation would never push our Carrolltown back pain patients to train for a marathon, but Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages simple exercise to our Carrolltown back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have had Carrolltown back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation applies exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to relieve Carrolltown back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Carrolltown 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 sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Carrolltown back pain patients? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One certain 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: Carrolltown back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, prevented fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recommends just wandering to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! Carrolltown back pain patients observe the difference!
