New Roads Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It is an admirable quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting a little guidance more often is better. New Roads Chiropractic Center is equipped to be your guide! New Roads back pain sufferers can count on New Roads Chiropractic Center to assemble, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine specially for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it’s not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) New Roads back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more in such a way!


A newer study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our New Roads back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be dealt with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent 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 visits. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your New Roads chiropractor is a well-trained New Roads back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
