Relieving Exercise for Burlington and Hamilton Back Pain Relief

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

Spinal Care Clinic hears you! Spinal Care Clinic knows your back hurts. Many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Burlington and Hamilton back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Burlington and Hamilton spinal stenosis or a Burlington and Hamilton disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our joint effort: Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.

Burlington and Hamilton SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN

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) Spinal Care Clinic looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Burlington and Hamilton 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 6 months post-treatment. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important component in Burlington and Hamilton pain relief treatment plans. Spinal Care Clinic is skilled at setting these up for our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients!

Burlington and Hamilton BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles 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 abs and intractable low back pain who have not been helped by conservative management. (4) Spinal Care Clinic can offer you some individualized exercises that will be just right for you 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 continued with these programs which both proved useful in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Spinal Care Clinic is prepared to be your community!

Burlington and Hamilton NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Spinal Care Clinic gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a good option to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)

Burlington and Hamilton POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN

Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. 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.
