Tarrytown Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Tarrytown Chiropractic would never persuade our Tarrytown back pain patients to prepare for a marathon, but Tarrytown Chiropractic kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Tarrytown Chiropractic promotes simple exercise to our Tarrytown back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Tarrytown chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Tarrytown Chiropractic understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have gone through Tarrytown back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic uses exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to alleviate Tarrytown back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Tarrytown low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients have a tendency to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Tarrytown back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, inhibited fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Tarrytown Chiropractic recommends just wandering to the mailbox or corner then adding a little each trip. Running races isn’t required! Tarrytown back pain patients observe the change!
