As any sufferer of Nashua back pain knows, getting relief can be a challenge. Many have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. But did you know that exercise could be an extra notch in the key to relieving your back pain? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be moderated by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) Namely, exercise can help ease back pain. Moriarty Chiropractic presents some information about how this works.
HOW EXERCISE HELPS WITH Nashua BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on your spine and lower the amount of back pain you experience due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps promote healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lower inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Moriarty Chiropractic combines Cox® Technic spinal manipulation that reduces intradiscal pressures (Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. William Hoffman on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes the Cox® Technic and its research showing drops in intradiscal pressure.) with exercises that are shown to reduce pain for optimal patient outcomes.
It is significant to note that when starting an exercise program for Nashua back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It’s also valuable to select low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping since these can place additional strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven helpful in decreasing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Nashua back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Moriarty Chiropractic as researchers write that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about proper exercises for their specific conditions.
