Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Chiropractic Care sees many West Palm Beach back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Chiropractic Care
also understands that when our West Palm Beach
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the decrease of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A recent study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those with spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Chiropractic Care helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability status more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise helped, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves
a little down when their back pain sticks around longer
than desired. It’s not uncommon. Again,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Chiropractic Care brings
in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our West Palm Beach back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
