Relieving Exercise for Baton Rouge Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation hears you! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows your back hurts. Many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Baton Rouge back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due to Baton Rouge spinal stenosis or a Baton Rouge disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our joint effort: Baton Rouge 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 bothers a patient. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation checks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Baton Rouge NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief lasts up to a half-year post-treatment. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential part in Baton Rouge pain relief treatment plans. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is good at setting these up for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients!

Baton Rouge BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and  increasing the efficiency of these muscles so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak ab muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation can offer you some individualized 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 cared for 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 kept at these programs which both proved productive in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Baton Rouge back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a great alternative to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise commencing one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more distinct functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help reduce back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain.
