Relieving Exercise for Sandy Springs Back Pain Relief

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

Cross Chiropractic Center hears you! Cross Chiropractic Center knows your back hurts. Many Sandy Springs chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Sandy Springs back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Sandy Springs spinal stenosis or a Sandy Springs disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our joint effort: Sandy Springs 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 revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center checks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Sandy Springs 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 6 months post-treatment. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important part in Sandy Springs pain relief treatment plans. Cross Chiropractic Center is skilled at setting these up for our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients!

Sandy Springs BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak ab muscles and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center can offer you some individualized exercises that will be just right for you 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 useful in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Cross Chiropractic Center is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Sandy Springs back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Cross Chiropractic Center gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a superb option to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise beginning one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about 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.
