No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Tarrytown Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. A lack of exercise is a risk for deteriorating pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Tarrytown Chiropractic takes care of many Tarrytown back pain patients in pain who also deal with depression. Tarrytown Chiropractic also knows that when our Tarrytown chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.


Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is the decrease of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A recent study reported that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those who had spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also found to a risk factor for the progression of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Tarrytown Chiropractic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.


Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved their functional disability level more with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, whether or not it was conventional!


For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves a little sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not unusual. Once more, exercise helps! Another study reported that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Tarrytown back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
