“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Vancouver Spine Care Centre hears you! Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows your back
hurts. Many Vancouver chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Vancouver back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Vancouver spinal stenosis or a Vancouver disc
herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our combined
effort: Vancouver chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Vancouver SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a
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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre checks for
such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.
Vancouver 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 just shows that spinal manipulation is an important
component in Vancouver pain relief treatment plans.
Vancouver Spine Care Centre is skilled at setting
these up for our Vancouver chiropractic patients!
Vancouver BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were treated
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 abs and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4)
Vancouver Spine Care Centre can offer you some specific
exercises that will be just right for you 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 continued with these programs which both proved productive
in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful
in getting patients to exercise in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Vancouver Spine Care Centre
is prepared to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some
Vancouver back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Vancouver Spine Care Centre
gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a
superb option to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)
Vancouver POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise starting one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in 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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre will help you explore
the best exercise option for you!
