Manchester Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any Manchester back pain patient understands, getting relief can be a challenge. Many have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. 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 affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) To put it another way, exercise can help ease back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and reduce 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 bad posture or bad habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it increases blood circulation which helps support healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help reduce inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 realize that when initiating an exercise program for Manchester back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually increase intensity over time as your body adapts. It is also valuable to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises such as running or jumping as these can place extra strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been shown to be useful in decreasing lower back pain for many back pain sufferers with chronic conditions like back pain. Manchester back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries as researchers write that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises for their specific conditions.
