Exercise Improves Sleep and New Roads Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! New Roads chiropractic patients come to understand that following this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their New Roads chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s known about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having New Roads back pain can be depressing if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than ideal capability. New Roads Chiropractic Center desires all New Roads chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their New Roads back pain and do what they can for New Roads back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly suggested to New Roads back pain sufferers to help them find New Roads back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite 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 performed stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your New Roads back pain specialist, your New Roads chiropractor takes a look at the whole New Roads back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan individualized for each New Roads back pain sufferer.
