The Movement Solution for Back Pain Relief

The Movement Solution for Back Pain Relief

When we feel pain in our low back, what’s the first thing many of us tend to think?

We need to lie down. We need to sit down. We need to rest so our back will feel better.

We may think we need to reach for a bottle of Aleve - maybe a heating pad.

Fair enough. Each of those methods has limited or short-term effectiveness at best, but they may help us find temporary relief.

But what about when those nagging aches and pains in our back return the next day?

Now that internal dialogue turns to - What’s the problem? What do I need to do so I don’t have to do the same thing day after day after day?

As the go-to lower back pain specialist in Nassau Bay, TX, we’re glad you asked!

Read on.

Bottom Line:

Simple movement can be one of the best ways to find all natural back pain relief.

In fact, science has shown us that medications and rest are actually a few of the least effective ways to find relief!

In one recent study, researchers found that 60% of participants with symptomatic cases of sciatica benefitted from chiropractic adjustments to the same degree as if they underwent surgical intervention.


Your body is designed to move, and often it's a lack of daily movement (or chronic postural changes) that causes back pain to begin in the first place.

Why it Matters:

When your joints aren't moving correctly, the rest of your body isn’t moving correctly, and that’s when pain can strike.

The right movements and exercises can help you recover more quickly and prevent future back pain episodes.

There are three different types of body movement: segmental, regional, and whole body.

Segmental motion occurs between the individual joints of your body.

Regional movement occurs in a body region such as your neck, mid-back, or low back.

Whole-body movement is characterized by the actions we typically think of as exercise.

All three types are essential and work together to keep your spine and musculoskeletal system healthy and functioning at its best.

Let’s take a closer look…

  1. Segmental Movement: Moving the individual joints of your body is what chiropractors are specifically trained to do. Proper segmental movement can help reduce pain, improve your range of motion, and influence your central nervous system.
  2. Regional Movement: Dynamic stretching with regional range of motion exercises can reduce low back stiffness.
  3. Whole Body Exercise: Daily exercise can help your brain and body feel better as well as improve your rest and recovery at night.

Chiropractic Care for All Natural Back Pain Relief

It’s easy to see why movement can be your most important ally when it comes to finding all natural relief from low back pain.

The foundation of all movement is segmental movement.

Take it from the leading lower back pain specialist in Nassau Bay, TX, if your joints aren't moving well, your body as a whole isn’t moving well, and you certainly aren’t going to be feeling well.

That’s where we come in.

Chiropractic care is a safe, natural, and effective way to help ensure your body is moving at its best so you can feel your best.

Harvard Health, The Mayo Clinic, and other established healthcare organizations have published numerous articles highlighting the benefits of chiropractic and movement-based treatment options.

Next Steps: 

Moving may be the last thing you want to do if you're struggling with back pain, but research has repeatedly shown that movement and exercise are two of the best ways to find relief from back pain.

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
