One of the most natural ways you can stimulate your body’s ability to heal itself is through active exercise that is conducted under careful and controlled supervision.
Patients who suffer from lower back pain might feel that they are either unable to or should not exercise due to the risk of furthering their injury.
However, studies show that not exercising can cause your pain to increase over time.
The fact is, remaining mobile helps nourish and repair the muscles, ligaments, discs, and joints that surround your spine.
Exercising on a routine basis helps your body better absorb key nutrients, including the disc spaces that exist throughout this area.
Too Much Rest Can Hurt More Than Help
Remaining inactive for too long when experiencing lower back pain can increase your pain, possibly leading to:
- Feeling weak
- Intense stiffness
In some cases, depriving your injured discs of the nutrition it needs to recover can lead to further degeneration and intense pain.
Following through with the specific types of exercise your Chiropractor recommends can help prevent or reduce the development of inflammation that naturally occurs in damaged tissue.
Making sure to stretch your hamstrings on a regular basis is critical therapy for patients who suffer from lower back pain and sciatica. If you happen to experience a particular episode of lower back pain that lasts for more than 10 days, make sure you schedule a consultation with one of our doctors as soon as possible in order to avoid permanent damage.
