Murfreesboro Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any Murfreesboro back pain patient understands, finding relief can be a challenge. 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, 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. Most Chiropractic Clinic presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated to be beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and lessen strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you feel due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it boosts blood circulation which helps advance healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help decrease inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Most Chiropractic Clinic 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 beginning an exercise program for Murfreesboro back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adapts. It’s also valuable to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping since these can place additional strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven helpful in decreasing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Murfreesboro back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Most Chiropractic Clinic as researchers note that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
