McHenry Chiropractor Encourages Exercise to Prolong Pain Relief

Chiropractors focus on the whole body, the whole person. A chiropractor is trained to understand how the bones, muscles, nerves, spinal cord, senses and the brain all work together. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic works with lots of whole people in McHenry to relieve pain when the body is out of sorts. Then, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers advice on how to maintain pain relief and control, so the pain doesn’t return. Exercise is one way to prolong pain relief. (1)

First of all, such a whole person focus allows our McHenry chiropractor to diagnose your pain right away. We’ll understand that your leg feels like it is on fire and that it feels like that because a nerve in your spine may be irritated or pinched. Your brain knows it. Your leg knows it. Your back knows it. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s chiropractor knows it. Once our chiropractic treatment plan reduces or shuts down that irritation, our chiropractic care favors ways to stave off such irritation in the future. That’s where exercise often comes into play.

The muscles are important to the body’s function and motion as well as to keeping the bones aligned and the spine walking on air. Now, it’s even noted that exercise lowers the pain receptors’ production – dopamine and noradrenaline – for up to 90 minutes after you stop exercising. (1) What a boon for your pain relief!

So, exercise a bit when you are in pain. Don’t do anything until we talk about the right exercise for you, of course! But exercise goes hand in hand with your McHenry chiropractic pain relief, likely giving you the between-visit comfort you want.
