  Exercise and Chiropractic Care

In the management of low back pain, it is important that the chiropractor blend a combination of chiropractic care with recommended cardiovascular and strengthening exercise.  Consultations with the patient's primary care physician must be done before the fitness-promoting activities are begun.

In combination with chiropractic care, exercise provides a variety of benefits.  It keeps the muscles in proper tone, promotes circulation, and even helps with digestion.  Exercise, exercise.  Even something as simple as walking can be extremely helpful.

Types of exercise
The type of exercise recommended for low back pain depends on the individual.   For example:

  • If a patient is more comfortable bending over, it is recommended that exercises that promote low back flexion, such as bending while sitting, pulling knees to the chest, and posterior pelvic tilts are usually very helpful.

  • If the patient feels better during extensions, push-up type exercises that extend the legs are usually the most effective.
