What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is different.
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! Apple Country Chiropractic hopes
to inspire our Williamson back pain patients to exercise and
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the participants shared that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep doing them. 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 continued 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) Apple Country Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Williamson back pain patients get Williamson back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (better than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic 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’s all about at Apple Country Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Williamson
chiropractor must everything possible to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Apple Country Chiropractic is ready and willing to do just that to help our Williamson back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
