Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There is something for everyone! Chiropractic Associates works
to inspire our Preston back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the participants shared that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common issues
for not continuing these activities were additional
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants kept going to these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Chiropractic Associates wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Preston back pain patients get Preston back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it is all about at Chiropractic Associates! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Preston
chiropractor must go all-in to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Chiropractic Associates is ready and willing to do just that to help our Preston back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
