Relieving Exercise for Plymouth Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology hears you! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows your back hurts. Many Plymouth chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: Plymouth back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Plymouth spinal stenosis or a Plymouth disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our combined effort: Plymouth chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


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 bothers a patient. (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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Plymouth 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 6 months later. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important part in Plymouth pain relief treatment plans. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is experienced at arranging for our Plymouth chiropractic patients!

Plymouth BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and  increasing the efficiency of these muscles to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology can offer you some individualized 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 kept at these programs which both proved productive in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more effective in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Plymouth back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a great alternative to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise commencing one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more pronounced 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.
