No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Sitka Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. 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. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka takes care of many Sitka back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka also understands that when our Sitka chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.


Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s the lessening of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A new study reported that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those with spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.


Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability status more with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, whether or not it was conventional!


For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves a little sad when their back pain sticks around longer than desired. It’s not unusual. Once more, exercise helps! 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka incorporates as many positive approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Sitka back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
