Exercise Improves Sleep and Williamson Back Pain

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


What is recognized about the sleep and pain connection? It is acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Having Williamson back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Great question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than optimal ability. Apple Country Chiropractic desires all Williamson chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Williamson back pain and do what they can for Williamson back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Williamson back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Williamson back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep though they used more time lying down. (3) As your Williamson back pain specialist, your Williamson chiropractor considers the whole Williamson back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each Williamson back pain sufferer.
