La Grande Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can be a huge help. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC would never persuade our La Grande back pain patients to train for a marathon, but Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC kindly promotes taking a walk to the corner or out to the mailbox! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages simple exercise to our La Grande back pain patients as part of the comprehensive La Grande chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) adds to the rehabilitation program of patients who have gone through La Grande back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC makes use of exercise and spinal manipulation via the Cox® Technic system to relieve La Grande back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a possible treatment for La Grande low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. How? Adipose, fatty tissue lets go of several types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain perception in back pain sufferers. What does this mean? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, causes fever and the sensation of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: La Grande back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the level they can. Start small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, prevented fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC suggests to start by just strolling to the mailbox or corner then adding a bit each trip. Running races isn’t necessary! La Grande back pain patients see the change!
