Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees many Brooks back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Soft Health and Healing Clinic
also understands that when our Brooks
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is
the decrease of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, experienced 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 must exercise! Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability level 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 describe themselves as
a little sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not uncommon. Once more,
exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Brooks back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
