“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Soft Health and Healing Clinic hears you! Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows your back
hurts. Many Brooks chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Brooks back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Brooks spinal stenosis or a Brooks disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined
effort: Brooks chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Brooks SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration 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 showed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic looks for
such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.
Brooks NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief lasts up to 6 months post-treatment.
(3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important
part in Brooks pain relief treatment plans.
Soft Health and Healing Clinic is good at arranging for our Brooks chiropractic patients!
Brooks BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach
muscles were treated
with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). This
tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and
increase intraabdominal pressure so that their effectiveness as spine
stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
a way for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have not been
helped by conservative management. (4)
Soft Health and Healing Clinic can recommend you some specific
exercises that will be just right for you 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 cared for 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 continued with these programs which both proved productive
in improving claudication measures similar to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful
in getting patients to exercise in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Soft Health and Healing Clinic
is prepared to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some
Brooks back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Soft Health and Healing Clinic
gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a
good alternative to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)
Brooks POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic
exercise commencing one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more distinct
functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease
back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Soft Health and Healing Clinic will help you discover
the best exercise choice for you!
