Fernandina Beach Back Pain Relief with Exercise & Chiropractic

As any sufferer of Fernandina Beach back pain understands, finding relief can be a challenge. You may have visited various healthcare providers with different treatments. But did you know that exercise could be just the right addition to your attempts at getting back pain relief? 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) Namely, exercise can help reduce back pain. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic presents some information about how this works.


Exercise has demonstrated to be beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain in a multitude of ways. First, it strengthens core and lower back muscles which support your spine and reduce strain on it. Strengthening these muscles can help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on your spine and decrease the amount of back pain you experience due to poor posture or bad habits like slouching. Additionally, exercise helps boost flexibility in your joints; it enhances blood circulation which helps further healing; and it releases endorphins which are natural pain killers that help lessen inflammation related to chronic back pain. (2,3) Amelia 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 significant to realize that when initiating an exercise program for Fernandina Beach back pain relief, you should start gently and gradually raise the intensity over time as your body adjusts. It is also valuable to select low-impact exercises such as walking or swimming rather than high impact exercises like running or jumping because these can put additional strain on your spine and irritate rather than help. Having said that, moderate aerobic exercise mixing strengthening and stretching exercises has been proven effective in decreasing lower back pain for many people suffering from chronic conditions like back pain. Fernandina Beach back pain patients have a great exercise partner at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic as researchers explain that chiropractors actively endorse (and participate in their own) physical activity by providing exercise information, asking patients about their physical activity level, and advising back pain patients about proper exercises to help their conditions.
