Relieving Exercise for Minster Back Pain Relief

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

Minster Chiropractic Center hears you! Minster Chiropractic Center knows your back hurts. Many Minster chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Minster back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Minster spinal stenosis or a Minster 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 joint effort: Minster 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? They have 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). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center checks 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 continues for up to a half-year post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential part in Minster pain relief treatment plans. Minster Chiropractic Center is experienced at arranging for our Minster chiropractic patients!


Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity 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 to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Minster Chiropractic Center can offer you some specific 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 productive in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more effective in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Minster Chiropractic Center is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Minster back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Minster Chiropractic Center gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a good alternative to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. 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.
