OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the participants shared that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common issues
for not continuing these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville wants to listen, inspire, and see
our St. Francisville back pain patients get St. Francisville back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the benchmark paper by Weber who explained that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville! Active, energetic management of
