Groton Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Groton back pain knows, finding relief can be challenging. You may 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, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be moderated by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) Namely, exercise can help decrease back pain. Let’s take a look at how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated itself beneficial for those who experience chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and decrease strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure exerted on your spine and decrease the amount of back pain you feel due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it boosts blood circulation which helps further healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help decrease inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 starting an exercise program for Groton back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adapts. It is also important to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping since these can put additional strain on your spine and make matters worse rather than better. With that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed 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. Groton back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office as researchers note that chiropractors actively promote (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.
