Relieving Exercise for Groton Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office hears you! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows your back hurts. Many Groton chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Groton back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Groton spinal stenosis or a Groton disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our joint effort: Groton chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? They have a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain bothers a patient. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.


Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief lasts up to 6 months post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential part in Groton pain relief treatment plans. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is good at setting these up for our Groton chiropractic patients!


Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and  increasing the efficiency of these muscles so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak ab muscles and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can offer you some individualized exercises that will be just right for you before resorting to a surgery!

INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon exercise like walking)

Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent claudication were cared for with a home-based exercise program a supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients kept at these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Groton back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a great option to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise starting one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more distinct functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain.
