“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
Watertown SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
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 offer 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 seems to be 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!
LOW BACK PAIN
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)
Watertown POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
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!
