Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees many St. Francisville back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
also recognizes that when our St. Francisville
chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is
the reduction of the spinal canal area due
to degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those who
had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also found to a risk factor for the advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability level better 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 describe themselves as
a little down when their back pain hangs around longer
than desired. It is not uncommon. Once more,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville incorporates as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our St. Francisville back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
