|Back Pain, Chiropractic Care, and Exercise
Most people now know the importance of exercise in daily life. The benefits of exercise range from improved strength, balance, and agility to deeper, more restful sleep, improved outlook on life, and heightened levels of creativity. Of course, there's also an additional direct benefit for persons with back pain.
Most cases of back pain are biomechanical in nature. In these circumstances, spinal joints have lost some mobility and spinal muscles have become tight. The long-term result is back pain, which may be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the biomechanical dysfunction. Chiropractic care is the specific treatment for problems involving the spinal joints and muscles. Exercise is an important addition to chiropractic care. When you perform challenging activities throughout a full range of motion, as you do when you exercise, you're retraining the joints and muscles of your back. By engaging in such activities on a regular basis, you're helping to restore spinal strength and mobility, enhancing the benefits you're receiving from chiropractic care.
Your chiropractor is an expert in rehabilitative exercise and will be glad to design an exercise program that will work for you.

Just 3 sessions with Dr. Goss accomplished what 5 weeks of physical therapy couldn't--finally a treatment that worked for my neck pain! I've been doing so much better. I've continued to see her for maintenance and the occasional urgently needed adjustment. I've been able to get appointments that work with my schedule and have been able to get in the same day when I need to. I've also been amazed by how quickly I am seen when I'm there for treatment--the longest wait I ever had there was 5 minutes to be seen (and that only happened once in the 2 years I've been going there). Usually, I am seen immediately. I highly recommend Complete Chiropractic of Union!
