Relieving Exercise for Easley Back Pain Relief

August 15, 2017

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Young Chiropractic hears you! Young Chiropractic knows your back hurts. Many Easley chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Easley back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Easley spinal stenosis or a Easley disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our combined effort: Easley chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? They have a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain bothers a patient. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Young Chiropractic looks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.


Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief lasts up to 6 months later. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Easley pain relief treatment plans. Young Chiropractic is experienced at setting these up for our Easley chiropractic patients!


Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and  increasing the efficiency of these muscles to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Young Chiropractic 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 treated 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 stuck with these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more effective in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Young Chiropractic is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Easley back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Young Chiropractic gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a great alternative to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise starting one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more pronounced 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.
