St. Francisville Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It’s a worthy quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, getting some guidance more often is better. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is ready to be your guide! St. Francisville back pain sufferers can depend on Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville to assemble, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!


Research shows that supervised exercise therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just three months. Sadly, it is not put in to practice enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) St. Francisville back pain patients may benefit just like these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A recent study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week and once a week - to home exercise. It states specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than one time a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our St. Francisville back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, no doubt!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only takes you so far when your back is hurting. There is always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are very common in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is honored to partner with you for back pain relief.
