Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise 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
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.
