No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More St. Francisville Pain & Disease Progression

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 mind.


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.


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!


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 sticks 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.
