Relieving Exercise for New York Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck) hurts?”

Dr. Gary Stefanick hears you! Dr. Gary Stefanick knows your back hurts. Many New York chiropractic patients come for just that motivation: New York back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of New York spinal stenosis or a New York disc herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our combined effort: New York chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.

New York SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN

Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? They have a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain bothers a patient. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Dr. Gary Stefanick checks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

New York NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief continues for up to 6 months later. (3) This just shows that spinal manipulation is an important part in New York pain relief treatment plans. Dr. Gary Stefanick is skilled at arranging for our New York chiropractic patients!

New York BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity were treated with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and  increasing the efficiency of these muscles so that their effectiveness as spine stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak lower abdominal muscles and stubborn low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4) Dr. Gary Stefanick can offer you some individualized exercises that will be just right for you before resorting to a surgery!

INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon exercise like walking)

Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent claudication were treated with a home-based exercise program a supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients stuck with these programs which both proved productive in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more effective in getting patients to exercise in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Dr. Gary Stefanick is ready to be your community!

New York NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some New York back pain sufferers crazy…with good reason! Dr. Gary Stefanick gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a good option to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)

New York POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN

Even after back surgery, exercise helps. Aerobic exercise commencing one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more marked functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help reduce back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Dr. Gary Stefanick will help you explore the best exercise choice for you!
