Relieving Exercise for St. Francisville Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville hears you! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows your back hurts. Many St. Francisville chiropractic patients come for just that reason: St. Francisville back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to St. Francisville spinal stenosis or a St. Francisville disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined effort: St. Francisville chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain have more fatty areas and less extensor muscles on MRI. What does that mean? There is a a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville checks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

St. Francisville NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief continues for up to a half-year post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential component in St. Francisville pain relief treatment plans. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is excellent at arranging for our St. Francisville chiropractic patients!

St. Francisville BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville can recommend you some specific exercises that will do the trick 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 treated 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 continued with these programs which both proved useful in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some St. Francisville back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a great alternative to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise beginning one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more distinct functional improvement than home exercise.
