Minster Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any Minster back pain patient knows, finding relief can be challenging. Many have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. But did you know that exercise could be just the right addition to your attempts at getting back pain relief? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) In other words, exercise can help ease back pain. Minster Chiropractic Center presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has proven to be beneficial for those who experience chronic back pain in several 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 placed on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you feel due to bad posture or bad habits like slouching. Further, 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) Minster Chiropractic Center 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 important to note that when initiating an exercise program for Minster back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It’s also valuable to choose low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping since these can place additional strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. With that, moderate aerobic exercise combined with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven helpful in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Minster back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Minster Chiropractic Center as researchers explain that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about suitable exercises to help their conditions.
