Toronto 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre would never push our Toronto back pain patients to prepare for a marathon, but Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre kindly encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre promotes simple exercise to our Toronto back pain patients as part of the complete Toronto chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have undergone Toronto back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery showed 89% improvement at a 3 month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre applies exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve Toronto back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for Toronto low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is linked to musculoskeletal pain feeling in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients are more likely to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise helps by controlling these issues. (2) Bottomline: Toronto back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the extent they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises bettered function, inhibited fatigue and strengthened transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre suggests to start by just strolling to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races is not required! Toronto back pain patients observe the change!
