Baton Rouge Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or hasn’t felt how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Spine & Sports Rehab Center would never press our Baton Rouge back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Spine & Sports Rehab Center gently promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Spine & Sports Rehab Center promotes simple exercise to our Baton Rouge back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have gone through Baton Rouge back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center makes use of exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve Baton Rouge back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Baton Rouge low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients are more likely to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Baton Rouge back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises increased function, prevented fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Spine & Sports Rehab Center recommends just taking a walk to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races is not required! Baton Rouge back pain patients see the difference!
