Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
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.
New Roads Chiropractic Center sees many New Roads back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. New Roads Chiropractic Center
also recognizes that when our New Roads
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is
the reduction of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! New Roads Chiropractic Center helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability level better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, whether
or not it was conventional!
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 sad when their back pain sticks around a while. It is not unusual. Again,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our New Roads back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
