San Jose 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. Chiropractic Solutions would never press our San Jose back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Chiropractic Solutions gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Chiropractic Solutions encourages simple exercise to our San Jose back pain patients as part of the comprehensive San Jose chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Chiropractic Solutions understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have had San Jose back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Chiropractic Solutions makes use of exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to ease San Jose back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for San Jose low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients have a tendency 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 helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: San Jose back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, stopped fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Chiropractic Solutions suggests to start by just wandering to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races is not necessary! San Jose back pain patients observe the difference!
