Lynchburg Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Palmer Chiropractic Center would never press our Lynchburg back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Palmer Chiropractic Center kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Palmer Chiropractic Center encourages simple exercise to our Lynchburg back pain patients as part of the complete Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Palmer Chiropractic Center understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have gone through Lynchburg back surgery. In one case study, a patient with leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center makes use of exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve Lynchburg back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Lynchburg 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, produces fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Lynchburg back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, prevented fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Palmer Chiropractic Center recommends just wandering to the mailbox or corner then adding a bit each trip. Running races isn’t required! Lynchburg back pain patients observe the change!
