Orchard Park, NY Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Orchard Park, NY back pain knows, finding relief can be a challenge. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. 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, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be moderated by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) To put it another way, exercise can help reduce back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has proven itself beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure placed on your spine and reduce 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 associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Novelli Wellness 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 significant to be aware that when initiating an exercise program for Orchard Park, NY back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It is also valuable to choose low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping as these can put extra strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. With that, moderate aerobic exercise combined with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven helpful in reducing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Orchard Park, NY back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Novelli Wellness Center as researchers write that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
