San Jose Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any San Jose back pain patient understands, getting relief can be challenging. Many have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. But did you know that exercise could be an extra notch in the key to relieving your back pain? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, links between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) Namely, exercise can help reduce back pain. Chiropractic Solutions presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has proven itself beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure exerted on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you feel due to poor posture or poor habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps further healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help decrease inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Chiropractic Solutions combines Cox® Technic spinal manipulation that reduces intradiscal pressures (Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. William Hoffman on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes the Cox® Technic and its research showing drops in intradiscal pressure.) with exercises that are shown to reduce pain for optimal patient outcomes.


It is valuable to be aware that when starting an exercise program for San Jose back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adapts. It’s also important to choose low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping as these can put extra strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed with stretching and strengthening exercises has been shown to be useful in reducing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. San Jose back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Chiropractic Solutions as researchers write that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
