“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka hears you! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows your back
hurts. Many Sitka chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Sitka back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due
to Sitka spinal stenosis or a Sitka disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our joint
effort: Sitka chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Sitka SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain have more fatty areas and
less extensor muscles on MRI. What does that mean? There is a
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 revealed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka checks for
such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.
Sitka NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief lasts up to 6 months later.
(3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important
component in Sitka pain relief treatment plans.
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is excellent at arranging for our Sitka chiropractic patients!
Sitka 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 so that their effectiveness as spine
stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
a way for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4)
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka 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 kept
at these programs which both proved effective
in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful
in getting patients to exercise in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
is ready to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some
Sitka back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a
superb alternative to try to reduce back pain and improve disability. (7)
Sitka POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise commencing one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more marked
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. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka will help you discover
the best exercise option for you!
