Relieving Exercise for Baton Rouge Back Pain Relief

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

Spine & Sports Rehab Center hears you! Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our combined 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). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle 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 continues for up to a half-year later. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important part in Baton Rouge pain relief treatment plans. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is excellent at arranging for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients!

Baton Rouge BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Spine & Sports Rehab Center can offer you some individualized 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 seems to be more successful in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Spine & Sports Rehab Center is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Baton Rouge back pain sufferers crazy…with good reason! Spine & Sports Rehab Center gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a great option to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise beginning one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more marked functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help reduce back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain.
