Montreal Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Montreal back pain understands, finding relief can be a challenge. You may have tried multiple treatments and healthcare providers. 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, associations between cardiovascular disease risk factors and spinal pain may be moderated by sex and health-related physical activity. (1) In other words, exercise can help reduce back pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated to be beneficial for those who suffer with chronic back pain in several ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and decrease strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on your spine and reduce the amount of back pain you feel due to bad posture or poor habits like slouching. Further, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps advance healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 important to note that when initiating an exercise program for Montreal back pain relief, you should start slowly and gradually up the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It’s also valuable to select low-impact exercises like walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping since these can place additional strain on your spine and aggravate rather than improve. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixed with stretching and strengthening exercises has been proven useful in reducing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Montreal back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic as researchers explain that chiropractors actively promote (and participate in their own) physical activity by offering exercise information, questioning patients about their physical activity level, and counseling back pain patients about suitable exercises to help their conditions.
