Relieving Exercise for Manahawkin Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center hears you! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows your back hurts. Many Manahawkin chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Manahawkin back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Manahawkin spinal stenosis or a Manahawkin disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our joint effort: Manahawkin chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


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 bothers a patient. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center looks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.

Manahawkin 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 Manahawkin pain relief treatment plans. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is experienced at arranging for our Manahawkin chiropractic patients!

Manahawkin BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak ab muscles and stubborn low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic 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 continued with these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures similar 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 Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Manahawkin back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a good alternative to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise beginning one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more marked functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center will help you discover the best exercise option for you!
