Relieving Exercise for Colorado Springs Back Pain Relief

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

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR hears you! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows your back hurts. Many Colorado Springs chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Colorado Springs back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Colorado Springs spinal stenosis or a Colorado Springs disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined effort: Colorado Springs chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration 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). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Colorado Springs 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 a half-year later. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important part in Colorado Springs pain relief treatment plans. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is skilled at setting these up for our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients!

Colorado Springs BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak ab muscles and intractable low back pain who have not been helped by conservative management. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can recommend 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 stuck with these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures comparable 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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Colorado Springs back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a good 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 resulted in a more marked 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will help you explore the best exercise option for you!
