Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any Fort Wayne back pain patient understands, getting relief can be a challenge. Many have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. 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, links 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 decrease back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and decrease strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on your spine and decrease the amount of back pain you feel due to bad posture or poor habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it boosts blood circulation which helps further healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lower inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 be aware that when initiating an exercise program for Fort Wayne back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually increase intensity over time as your body adjusts. It is also important to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping as these can put extra strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven effective in decreasing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Fort Wayne back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic as researchers note that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about suitable exercises to help their conditions.
