Relieving Exercise for Lynchburg Back Pain Relief

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

Palmer Chiropractic Center hears you! Palmer Chiropractic Center knows your back hurts. Many Lynchburg chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Lynchburg back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Lynchburg spinal stenosis or a Lynchburg disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our combined effort: Lynchburg 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? There is a 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). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center checks for such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.

Lynchburg 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 goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important part in Lynchburg pain relief treatment plans. Palmer Chiropractic Center is experienced at setting these up for our Lynchburg chiropractic patients!

Lynchburg BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were treated 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 so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak ab muscles and stubborn low back pain who have not been helped by conservative management. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center can recommend 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center is prepared to be your community!


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


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise commencing 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.
