Sandy Springs Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Sandy Springs back pain understands, finding relief can be challenging. You may have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. But did you know that exercise could be just the right addition to your attempts at getting back pain relief? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, links between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be moderated by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) Namely, exercise can help reduce back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and lessen strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure placed on your spine and decrease the amount of back pain you experience due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps promote healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Cross Chiropractic Center 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 initiating an exercise program for Sandy Springs back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually increase intensity over time as your body adjusts. It is also important to select low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping because these can put additional strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been shown to be helpful in decreasing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Sandy Springs back pain patients have a great exercise coach at Cross Chiropractic Center as researchers note that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
