The body needs to move to heal and to strengthen the spine and to slow the return of back pain. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka typically urges movement and exercise to Sitka back pain sufferers to lessen their Sitka back pain.


Exercise types from walking to running, from light weight to heavy weight, from high intensity to yoga and Pilates promote healthier lives and stronger spines. One study explains the benefits of Pilates, a gentler exercise approach that is quite successful for back pain relief. Likely owing to its core muscle activation and lumbopelvic rhythm improvement, Pilates functioned better than extension-based exercises for reducing pain and improving range of motion and physical disability. (1) Further, receiving active interferential current therapy before Pilates reduced28 pain quicker than a placebo current: 30% reduction in one session, 50% in two, 100% in three. That’s statistically significant! (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka often mixes therapies and exercise options to enhance clinical relief for Sitka back pain patients just like this!
