Largo Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Largo back pain understands, getting relief can be challenging. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. But did you know that exercise could be an extra notch in the key to relieving your back pain? According to the CHAMPS Study-DK, links between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be affected by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) Namely, exercise can help ease back pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated to be beneficial for those who have chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens the muscles in your core and lower back which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help ease some of the pressure placed on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you experience due to bad posture or bad habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps increase flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps advance healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help decrease inflammation associated with chronic back pain. (2,3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 be aware that when initiating an exercise program for Largo back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adapts. It is also valuable to select low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping since these can put additional strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. With that, moderate aerobic exercise combined with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven effective in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Largo back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Hollstrom & Associates Inc as researchers explain that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
