Sandy Springs 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. Cross Chiropractic Center would never press our Sandy Springs back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Cross Chiropractic Center gently promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Cross Chiropractic Center encourages simple exercise to our Sandy Springs back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Cross Chiropractic Center knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have gone through Sandy Springs back surgery. In one case study, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center uses exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to ease Sandy Springs back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Sandy Springs low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Sandy Springs back pain patients? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Sandy Springs back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, stopped fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Cross Chiropractic Center suggests to start by just strolling to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races is not necessary! Sandy Springs back pain patients see the change!
