Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Pain sufferers 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.
Chiropractic Associates sees many Preston back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Chiropractic Associates
also recognizes that when our Preston
chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is
the lessening of the spinal canal area due
to degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced 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 with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Chiropractic Associates helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability level better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, whether
or not it was conventional!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves
a little sad when their back pain sticks around a while. It’s 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. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Chiropractic Associates incorporates as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Preston back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
