Relieving Exercise for Baton Rouge Back Pain Relief

August 15, 2017

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers hears you! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers knows your back hurts. Many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Baton Rouge back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Baton Rouge spinal stenosis or a Baton Rouge disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our joint effort: Baton Rouge chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


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). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers checks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.

Baton Rouge NECK PAIN

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 a half-year later. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important part in Baton Rouge pain relief treatment plans. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is skilled at arranging for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients!

Baton Rouge BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity 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 a way for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers can recommend you some specific exercises that will do the trick 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 productive in improving claudication measures similar 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 Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Baton Rouge back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a good option to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise starting one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in 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.
