West Palm Beach Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It’s a worthy quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting a little guidance more often is better. Chiropractic Care is prepared to be your guide! West Palm Beach back pain sufferers can depend on Chiropractic Care to establish, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!


Research shows that supervised exercise therapy allows significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it is underutilized. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) West Palm Beach back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A newer study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week and one time weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our West Palm Beach back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Regarding exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are very common in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. (4) Chiropractic Care is honored to be chosen for back pain relief.
