Brooks Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or hasn’t felt how good it feels to exercise, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Soft Health and Healing Clinic would never press our Brooks back pain patients to train for a marathon, but Soft Health and Healing Clinic gently promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Soft Health and Healing Clinic promotes simple exercise to our Brooks back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Brooks chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have undergone Brooks back surgery. In one report, a patient who had leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic utilizes exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve Brooks back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by reducing the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Brooks low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Brooks back pain patients? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, triggers fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Brooks back pain patients are advised to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Start small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, inhibited fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Soft Health and Healing Clinic recommends just strolling to the mailbox or corner then adding a bit each trip. Running races is not required! Brooks back pain patients notice the change!
