Relieving Exercise for McHenry Back Pain Relief

“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 exercise.

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. Spengel Chiropractic is experienced at arranging for our McHenry chiropractic patients!

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!

McHenry NON-SPECIFIC 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!
