to inspire our Sitka back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the participants stated that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep doing them. The most common issues
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise offered 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Sitka back pain patients get Sitka back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six
weeks of twice-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 harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who explained that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it is all about at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Sitka
