Relieving Exercise for Watertown Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Watertown Wellness Center hears you! Watertown Wellness Center knows your back hurts. Many Watertown chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Watertown back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Watertown spinal stenosis or a Watertown disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our joint effort: Watertown chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? They have a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (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) Watertown Wellness Center checks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Watertown NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief continues for up to 6 months post-treatment. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important component in Watertown pain relief treatment plans. Watertown Wellness Center is experienced at arranging for our Watertown chiropractic patients!

Watertown 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 to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have not been helped by conservative management. (4) Watertown Wellness Center can recommend you some specific exercises that will be just right for you 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 continued with these programs which both proved effective in improving claudication measures similar to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Watertown Wellness Center is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Watertown back pain sufferers crazy…with good reason! Watertown Wellness Center gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a good alternative to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise beginning 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. Watertown Wellness Center will help you explore the best exercise option for you!
