Exercise Improves Sleep and Chicago Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Chicago chiropractic patients come to understand that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Chicago chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.

TOO LITTLE SLEEP, TOO MUCH PAIN

What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Chicago back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than optimal ability. Chiropractic Care desires all Chicago chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Chicago back pain and do what they can for Chicago back pain relief.

WHAT HELPS SLEEP AND PAIN

Exercise is commonly suggested to Chicago back pain sufferers to help them find Chicago back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be quite useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that better sleep quality is linked to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Chicago back pain specialist, your Chicago chiropractor takes a look at the whole Chicago back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy individualized for each Chicago back pain sufferer.
