Exercise Improves Sleep and Preston Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Preston chiropractic patients come to understand that acting on this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Preston chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s known about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having Preston back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than optimal capability. Chiropractic Associates desires all Preston chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Preston back pain and do what they can for Preston back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly recommended to Preston back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Preston back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that improved sleep quality is linked to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep though they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Preston back pain specialist, your Preston chiropractor takes a look at the whole Preston back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Preston back pain sufferer.
