Pflugerville 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 do so much. Pflugerville Wellness Center would never persuade our Pflugerville back pain patients to prepare for a marathon, but Pflugerville Wellness Center kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages simple exercise to our Pflugerville back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Pflugerville chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Pflugerville Wellness Center understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the recovery of patients who have had Pflugerville back surgery. In one case study, a patient with leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center uses exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to relieve Pflugerville back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Pflugerville low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue releases several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which boost the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this bother Pflugerville back pain patients? Overweight patients are more likely to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Pflugerville back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, prevented fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Pflugerville Wellness Center recommends just taking a walk to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! Pflugerville back pain patients see the difference!
