Watertown Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or has not experienced how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Watertown Wellness Center would never press our Watertown back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Watertown Wellness Center kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Watertown Wellness Center encourages simple exercise to our Watertown back pain patients as part of the complete Watertown chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Watertown Wellness Center knows that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have had Watertown back surgery. In one case study, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Watertown Wellness Center applies exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to ease Watertown back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by decreasing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Watertown low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which boost the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain feeling in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Watertown back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, inhibited fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Watertown Wellness Center recommends just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then adding a bit each trip. Running races isn’t required! Watertown back pain patients notice the change!
