Manahawkin Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just doesn’t exercise or has not experienced 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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center would never press our Manahawkin back pain patients to train for a marathon, but Manahawkin Chiropractic Center gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center promotes simple exercise to our Manahawkin back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have undergone Manahawkin back surgery. In one report, 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to ease Manahawkin back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Manahawkin low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain feeling in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Manahawkin back pain patients? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One specific inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, produces fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Manahawkin back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Start small. Simple stabilization exercises increased function, stopped fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Manahawkin Chiropractic Center suggests to start by just taking a walk to the mailbox or corner then adding a little each trip. Running races is not required! Manahawkin back pain patients see the change!
