Relieving Exercise for Southern New Hampshire Back Pain Relief

August 15, 2017

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

New Hampshire Spine and Sport hears you! New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows your back hurts. Many Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Southern New Hampshire back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Southern New Hampshire spinal stenosis or a Southern New Hampshire disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or goes down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our joint effort: Southern New Hampshire 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 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 revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport looks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Southern New Hampshire 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 just shows that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Southern New Hampshire pain relief treatment plans. New Hampshire Spine and Sport is excellent at setting these up for our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients!

Southern New Hampshire BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered as an option for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management.

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 effective 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 New Hampshire Spine and Sport is ready to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! New Hampshire Spine and Sport gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a great alternative to try to decrease back pain and improve disability. (7)

Southern New Hampshire POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN

Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise commencing one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more distinct functional improvement than home exercise.
