Williamson Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Williamson back pain knows, getting relief can be a challenge. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. 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 moderated by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) Namely, exercise can help reduce back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has proven to be beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in several 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 feel due to poor posture or poor habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps advance healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Apple Country Chiropractic 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 significant to note that when initiating an exercise program for Williamson back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It is also valuable to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping since these can put extra strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed with stretching and strengthening exercises has been shown to be useful in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Williamson back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Apple Country Chiropractic as researchers write that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
