Relieving Exercise for Pflugerville Back Pain Relief

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

Pflugerville Wellness Center hears you! Pflugerville Wellness Center knows your back hurts. Many Pflugerville chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Pflugerville back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Pflugerville spinal stenosis or a Pflugerville disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our joint effort: Pflugerville 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center checks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.

Pflugerville 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 post-treatment. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Pflugerville pain relief treatment plans. Pflugerville Wellness Center is skilled at arranging for our Pflugerville chiropractic patients!

Pflugerville BACK PAIN

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 a way for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Pflugerville Wellness Center can recommend you some individualized exercises that will do the trick 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 treated 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 useful in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Pflugerville Wellness Center is ready to be your community!


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


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise beginning 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. Pflugerville Wellness Center will help you explore the best exercise option for you!
