“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider hears you! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows your back
hurts. Many Ottawa chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Ottawa back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Ottawa spinal stenosis or a Ottawa disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our joint
effort: Ottawa chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Ottawa 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? There is a
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). A
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider checks for
such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.
Ottawa 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 later.
(3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential
component in Ottawa pain relief treatment plans.
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is excellent at arranging for our Ottawa chiropractic patients!
Ottawa BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity 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
as an option for patients with weak ab
muscles and stubborn low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4)
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider 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 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 kept
at these programs which both proved productive
in improving claudication measures similar to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider
is prepared to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some
Ottawa back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider
gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a
good option to try to reduce back pain and improve disability. (7)
Ottawa 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. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider will help you discover
the best exercise choice for you!
