Baton Rouge Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just doesn’t exercise or has not experienced how good it feels to exercise, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation would never press our Baton Rouge back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation promotes simple exercise to our Baton Rouge back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have had Baton Rouge back surgery. In one case study, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation applies exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve Baton Rouge back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Baton Rouge low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this bother Baton Rouge back pain patients? Overweight patients are more likely to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Baton Rouge back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, prevented fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation recommends just strolling to the mailbox or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! Baton Rouge back pain patients see the difference!
