What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is different.
Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There is something for everyone! Soft Health and Healing Clinic hopes
to inspire our Brooks 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 condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the patients reported 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 provided 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Brooks back pain patients get Brooks back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study reported that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the benchmark paper by Weber who explained that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Soft Health and Healing Clinic! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Brooks
chiropractor must go all out to take
care of the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Soft Health and Healing Clinic is ready and able to do just that to bring
relief to our Brooks back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
