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

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!
