Relieving Exercise for Nashua Back Pain Relief

August 15, 2017

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Moriarty Chiropractic hears you! Moriarty Chiropractic knows your back hurts. Many Nashua chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Nashua back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Nashua spinal stenosis or a Nashua disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our combined effort: Nashua 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? There is a a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (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) Moriarty Chiropractic looks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.


Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief lasts up to a half-year later. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important component in Nashua pain relief treatment plans. Moriarty Chiropractic is skilled at arranging for our Nashua chiropractic patients!


Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were treated 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 as an option for patients with weak ab muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic can recommend you some individualized 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 continued with these programs which both proved useful in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Moriarty Chiropractic is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Nashua back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Moriarty Chiropractic gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a superb alternative to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise starting one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more distinct 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. Moriarty Chiropractic will help you explore the best exercise choice for you!
