Sitka Chiropractic Treatment Plan Includes Exercise to Prevent Back Pain

Chiropractic and back pain relief mix well. (Sitka chiropractic services are plentiful to encourage that combo!) When your Sitka chiropractor tells someone about being a chiropractor, the other person many times starts recounting his/her personal story of back pain or leg pain or sciatica or neck pain (or that of a family member)! Your Sitka chiropractor loves it! Sitka back pain sufferers are invited to come for Sitka chiropractic care to reduce their current back pain and learn ways to prevent future episodes that they can use and impart to friends and family. One of the most important tips Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka relays is that exercise (the proper type for each individual) works.


Exercise works to prevent low back pain in most adults. The 12,721 patient study (NHANES) evaluated those who didn’t do any muscle strengthening activity, did it only one day a week, or did it two days a week. The result: exercising with muscle strengthening activities at least (or rather just) 2 days a week lowers the risk of low back pain. (Side note: Smoking influences this. Recommendation: Don’t smoke.) (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka recognizes that our Sitka chiropractic patients can squeeze in a couple times a week for some exercise like this to reduce the odds of low back pain!


Exercise as part of the Sitka chiropractic treatment plan at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka works for pregnancy-related back pain lessening and prevention. A recent study of findings from 11 studies of 2347 pregnant women shares that exercise cuts the risk of pregnancy-related low back pain. Sick leave because of low back pain during pregnancy is diminished, too. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is certain that our Sitka pregnant patients want to do what is best for their health as well as their baby’s. Exercise may be agreat self-care/baby-care activity!


Exercise works for middle-aged employees. Muscle strength bettered and low back pain declined in a 5 month study of employees who did at-home exercises. Trunk muscle strength and low back pain improved in all workers as well as those with pre-existing chronic low back pain. Work ability improved, too. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka watches your strength and back pain improvement at your Sitka chiropractic appointments.
