Exercise Improves Sleep and St. Francisville Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! St. Francisville chiropractic patients come to know that acting on this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What is known about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Having St. Francisville back pain can be disheartening if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than optimal ability. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville wants all St. Francisville chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their St. Francisville back pain and do what they can for St. Francisville back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly recommended to St. Francisville back pain sufferers to help them find St. Francisville back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that better sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep though they spent more time lying down. (3) As your St. Francisville back pain specialist, your St. Francisville chiropractor takes a look at the whole St. Francisville back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan individualized for each St. Francisville back pain sufferer.
