“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Spengel Chiropractic hears you! Spengel Chiropractic knows your back
hurts. Many McHenry chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
McHenry back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due
to McHenry spinal stenosis or a McHenry disc
herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined
effort: McHenry chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
McHenry 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? They have
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). One
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Spengel Chiropractic looks for
such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.
McHenry NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief continues for up to a half-year post-treatment.
(3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential
part in McHenry pain relief treatment plans.

McHenry BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs 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 to
make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
a way for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4)
Spengel Chiropractic can recommend you some individualized
exercises that will do the trick 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 treated 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 stuck with these programs which both proved effective
in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more effective
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Spengel Chiropractic
is prepared to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some
McHenry back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Spengel Chiropractic
gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a
great alternative to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)
McHenry POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic
exercise beginning 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. Spengel Chiropractic will help you discover
the best exercise choice for you!
