Pflugerville Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Pflugerville back pain understands, finding relief can be challenging. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. 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, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) To put it another way, exercise can help reduce back pain. Pflugerville Wellness Center presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and lessen strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure placed on your spine and decrease the amount of back pain you feel due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it boosts blood circulation which helps promote healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help reduce inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 important to be aware that when beginning an exercise program for Pflugerville back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adapts. It is also valuable to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping because these can place extra strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. With that, moderate aerobic exercise combined with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven effective in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Pflugerville back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Pflugerville Wellness Center as researchers note that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about suitable exercises to help their conditions.
