Williamson Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It’s an admirable quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, seeking a little guidance more often is better. Apple Country Chiropractic is equipped to be your guide! Williamson back pain sufferers can count on Apple Country Chiropractic to establish, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!


Research shows that supervised exercise therapy allows significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it is not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Williamson back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A recent study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and one time a week - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Williamson back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, without a doubt!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any longer! Then a trip to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Williamson chiropractor is an experienced Williamson back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
