Vancouver Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or has not felt 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. Vancouver Disc Centers would never press our Vancouver back pain patients to prepare for a marathon, but Vancouver Disc Centers gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Vancouver Disc Centers encourages simple exercise to our Vancouver back pain patients as part of the complete Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Vancouver Disc Centers knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have undergone Vancouver back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers uses exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to relieve Vancouver back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Vancouver low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases several 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. What does this mean? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One specific inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, produces fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Vancouver 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)  Vancouver Disc Centers recommends just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then adding a bit each trip. Running races is not necessary! Vancouver back pain patients observe the change!
