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

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 takes care of 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 mind.

NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It’s 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, 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 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 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 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.
