Manahawkin Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any Manahawkin back pain patient knows, finding relief can be challenging. Many have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. But did you know that exercise could be an extra notch in the key to relieving your back pain? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, links between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) In other words, exercise can help ease back pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure placed on your spine and lower the amount of back pain you experience due to bad posture or bad habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps support healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lower inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Manahawkin Chiropractic 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 valuable to realize that when beginning an exercise program for Manahawkin back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adapts. It’s also important to choose low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping since these can put additional strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven useful in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Manahawkin back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center as researchers explain that chiropractors actively promote (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 for their specific conditions.
