“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
Vancouver SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
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 specific
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 appears 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!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some
Vancouver back pain patients over the edge…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)
Vancouver POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
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!
