Colorado Springs Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR would never press our Colorado Springs back pain patients to prepare for a marathon, but The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR promotes simple exercise to our Colorado Springs back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the recovery of patients who have had Colorado Springs back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR applies exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to alleviate Colorado Springs back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Colorado Springs low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Colorado Springs back pain patients? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, produces fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Colorado Springs back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, stopped fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR recommends just taking a walk to the mailbox or corner then adding a bit each trip. Running races is not necessary! Colorado Springs back pain patients observe the change!
