Oxford Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who just does not exercise or hasn’t felt how good it feels to exercise, it might be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Satterwhite Chiropractic would never press our Oxford back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Satterwhite Chiropractic kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Satterwhite Chiropractic encourages simple exercise to our Oxford back pain patients as part of the complete Oxford chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Satterwhite Chiropractic understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have gone through Oxford back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after getting spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic uses exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to ease Oxford back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Oxford low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which enhance the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients are more likely to feel more pain. One certain inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Oxford back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises increased function, inhibited fatigue and increased transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Satterwhite Chiropractic recommends just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a bit each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! Oxford back pain patients notice the change!
