What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s 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’s something for everyone! New Roads Chiropractic Center hopes
to inspire our New Roads back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the participants reported that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants kept going to 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our New Roads back pain patients get New Roads back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in 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 explained that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at New Roads Chiropractic Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your New Roads
chiropractor must everything possible to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
New Roads Chiropractic Center is ready and willing to do just that to bring
relief to our New Roads back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
