“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn hears you! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows your back
hurts. Many Ashburn chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Ashburn back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether due
to Ashburn spinal stenosis or a Ashburn disc
herniation whether it’s in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined
effort: Ashburn chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Ashburn SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain have more fatty areas and
less extensor muscles on MRI. What does that mean? They have
a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present.
(1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). One
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo showed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn looks for
such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.
Ashburn 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 goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important
part in Ashburn pain relief treatment plans.

Ashburn BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity were cared for
with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). This
tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and
increase intraabdominal pressure 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 intractable low back pain who have been unsuccessful with conservative management. (4)
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can offer you some individualized
exercises that will do the trick 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 similar to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
is ready to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some
Ashburn back pain sufferers crazy…with good reason! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
gets it! Compared with minimal or other interventions Pilates is a
great option to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)
Ashburn POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise beginning one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more marked
functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease
back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn will help you discover
