We all know that exercise can help you feel good and stay in shape, but did you know that it can help you manage pain? Cardiovascular exercise and strength training in combination with chiropractic care can help you achieve relief from chronic or temporary lower back pain. It is important that a patient who suffers from other major illnesses seeks the help of their general care practitioner in addition to a chiropractor. A reasonable amount of exercise is recommended for those undergoing chiropractic treatment. It is also suggested that these activities are enjoyable by the patient.
Many studies have shown how important exercise is for managing acute to chronic lower back pain, strengthening the lower back, and improving the quality of life. The level of strength in the abdominal muscles has also shown to assist in the management of this pain, meaning that the higher the abdominal strength, the lower the pain.
Overall cardiovascular and muscular exercise helps to promote proper digestion, tones muscles, helps with circulation, and reduces pain.
