Exercise Improves Sleep and Brooks Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Brooks chiropractic patients come to know that acting on this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Brooks chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having Brooks back pain can be depressing if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than optimal capability. Soft Health and Healing Clinic wants all Brooks chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Brooks back pain and do what they can for Brooks back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Brooks back pain sufferers to help them find Brooks back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be quite valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that better sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Brooks back pain specialist, your Brooks chiropractor considers the whole Brooks back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy personalized for each Brooks back pain sufferer.
