Ottawa Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider would never persuade our Ottawa back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider gently promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider promotes simple exercise to our Ottawa back pain patients as part of the complete Ottawa chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the rehabilitation program of patients who have had Ottawa back surgery. In one case study, a patient with leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider uses exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to alleviate Ottawa back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Ottawa low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain sensation in back pain sufferers. How does this affect Ottawa back pain patients? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, produces fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation associated to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Ottawa back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises increased function, inhibited fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider recommends just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races isn’t required! Ottawa back pain patients observe the difference!
