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

NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
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.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
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!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
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.
