What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Do like to hear “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” We all like choices! We all have preferences. Your Sitka chiropractor is up for offering you options when it comes to exercise.  Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka just hopes you exercise. You pick how! When you choose, the outcomes are better with regards to satisfaction and pain relief. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka's chiropractic care is all about you and your Sitka back pain relief.


Including spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain improves their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this come from having a professional check on you and your healing periodically? If you are doing home exercise all by yourself, you don’t get the benefit of someone caring for you, checking on your progress objectively, letting you know you are improving. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is here for our Sitka chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise guidance and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is hard to deal with. It often limits what you can do. It tends to also reduce your quality and enjoyment of life.


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wishes our Sitka back pain patients to do what they desire and like what they do. Exercise is essential. Performing a type of exercise that a back pain patient likes increases the possibility that he or she will exercise. What do you enjoy doing? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – assessed the effectiveness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study proposes that either will decrease pain and improve balance and function and that Pilates may be more effective as its exercises aim at the trunk stabilization muscles. Both ways, having a patient choose an exercise program is the goal to boost patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
