If that does not produce the desired results, adding non-drug therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise, acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is recommended by medical physician groups like the American College of Physicians and American Pain Society. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre delivers a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment in the form of Cox® Technic for relief of back pain that may well assist Toronto back pain sufferers avoid back surgery and control their back pain more independently.


Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves as much as possible. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre realizes this. Exercise is shown useful for non-surgical pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right type of exercise is key, so we’ll discuss what’s proper for you! Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who undertook a Pilates-based exercise program revealed that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more independently and efficiently. They performed better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising, did more to manage their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, helped them experience a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits resulted without back surgery.


Researchers established a trial of exercise for back pain patients scheduled for back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They established exercise programs for each patient to do. They found that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ disposition improved as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not describe symptom improvement responded well to this program as they thought themselves more confident in being able to do some self-management of their pain. (4) These are all positive outcomes Toronto back pain patients find in their chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Control not cure is a reasonable goal when dealing with back pain.
