Relieving Exercise for Vancouver Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Vancouver Disc Centers hears you! Vancouver Disc Centers knows your back hurts. Many Vancouver chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Vancouver back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Vancouver spinal stenosis or a Vancouver disc herniation whether it is 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 exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain have more fatty areas and less extensor muscles on MRI. What does that mean? They have 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). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers looks 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 later. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important component in Vancouver pain relief treatment plans. Vancouver Disc Centers is experienced at setting these up for our Vancouver chiropractic patients!

Vancouver BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were cared for 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 as an option for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers can offer you some individualized 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 cared for 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 kept at 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 increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Vancouver Disc Centers is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Vancouver back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Vancouver Disc Centers gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a superb option to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise beginning one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more distinct 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. Vancouver Disc Centers will help you explore the best exercise choice for you!
