What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing to you? We all like choices! We all have favorites. Your St. Francisville chiropractor is prepared to give you options when it involves exercise.  Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville just wants you to exercise. You decide how! When you get to pick, the results are better in terms of satisfaction and pain relief. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville's chiropractic care is all about you and your St. Francisville back pain relief.


Adding spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain enriches their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this come from having a professional check on you and your healing periodically? If you are doing home exercise alone, you do not get the benefit of someone tending to you, checking on your progress objectively, confirming that you are healing. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here for our St. Francisville chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is hard to cope with. It often holds you back from doing what you want to do. It tends to also diminish your quality and enjoyment of life.


Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville wants our St. Francisville back pain patients to do what they desire and enjoy what they do. Exercise helps. Performing a form of exercise that a back pain patient enjoys increases the probability that he or she will exercise. What do you enjoy doing? A new study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – compared the usefulness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study suggests that either will decrease pain and increase balance and function and that Pilates may be more successful as its exercises target the trunk stabilization muscles. Both ways, having a patient choose an exercise program is the goal to boost patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
