Vancouver Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or hasn’t felt how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Vancouver Spine Care Centre would never push our Vancouver back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Vancouver Spine Care Centre kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Vancouver Spine Care Centre promotes simple exercise to our Vancouver back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have undergone Vancouver back surgery. In one case study, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre utilizes exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to alleviate Vancouver back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Vancouver low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? 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 feeling in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Vancouver back pain patients? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Vancouver back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, prevented fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Vancouver Spine Care Centre recommends just wandering to the end of the driveway or corner then adding a little each trip. Running races is not required! Vancouver back pain patients observe the change!
