Motivation’s Role in Chicago Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Chicago back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Chicago back pain relief. Your Chicago chiropractor knows this well. Chiropractic Care helps each Chicago back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – come to terms with exercise that will relieve and even control and possibly keep at bay future episodes of back pain.

MOTIVATION AND COMMUNICATION

Often it comes down to communication. As your Chicago back pain specialist, your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care discovers the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Chicago chiropractic back pain specialist at Chiropractic Care will work hard on communicating with our Chicago chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Chiropractic Care promises!

MOTIVATION AND NON-SPECIFIC BACK PAIN

Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Chicago back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) Chiropractic Care appreciates all of these types in day-to-day Chicago chiropractic practice! No fear! Chiropractic Care designs fitting approaches for all these types to engage with exercise in a healthy way.

MOTIVATION AND CHRONIC BACK PAIN

Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to inspire a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Chiropractic Care! We’ve seen it before. If we can get a Chicago back pain patient to do what she wants to do gets her motivated! Chiropractic Care knows that if a Chicago back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he will not lift weights. Chiropractic Care recognizes that if a Chicago back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she will walk. Right?! So what motivates you? Chiropractic Care will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start? Chiropractic Care is here for you!
