No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Williamson Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. No exercising is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Apple Country Chiropractic sees many Williamson back pain patients in pain who also deal with depression. Apple Country Chiropractic also knows that when our Williamson chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It’s the reduction of the spinal canal area due to degeneration. A new study reported that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those with spondylolisthesis, had 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! Apple Country Chiropractic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.

EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability status better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, conventional or not!

EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION

For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as a little blue when their back pain sticks around longer than desired. It is not uncommon. Again, exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Apple Country Chiropractic incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Williamson back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
