Chiropractors focus on the whole body, the whole person. A chiropractor studies to understand how the bones, muscles, nerves, spinal cord, senses and the brain all work together. Young Chiropractic has worked with our fair share of whole people in Easley to relieve pain when the body is out of sorts. Then, Young Chiropractic offers advice on how to maintain pain relief and control, so the pain doesn’t return. Exercise is one way to prolong pain relief. (1)

First of all, such a whole person focus allows our Easley chiropractor to "get" your pain right away. We’ll get that your leg feels like it is on fire and that it feels like that because a nerve in your spine may be irritated or pinched. Your brain knows it. Your leg knows it. Your back knows it. Young Chiropractic’s chiropractor knows it. Once our chiropractic treatment plan reduces or eliminates that irritation, our chiropractic care leans toward ways to avoid such irritation in the future. That’s where exercise often comes into play.

The muscles are important to the body’s function and motion as well as to keeping the bones aligned and the spine happy. Now, it’s even noted that exercise decreases the pain receptors’ production – dopamine and noradrenaline – for up to 90 minutes after you stop exercising. (1) What a boon for your pain relief!

So, exercise a bit when you are in pain. Don’t do anything until we talk about the right exercise for you, of course! But exercise complements your Easley chiropractic pain relief, possibly giving you the between-visit relief you want.
