|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.

Dr. Gerckens is the best chiropractor I have been to. I severely pinched my sciatic nerve 25 years ago. I walked with tremendous pain until I saw a chiropractor.The chiropractor I saw provided some relief, but the problems kept returning. I visited many chiropractors over the years, but my back pain did not permanently end until I visited Dr. Gerckens.
