Motivations Role in Brooks Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Brooks back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Brooks back pain relief. Your Brooks chiropractor knows this well. Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps each Brooks back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – face the fact that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Brooks back pain specialist, your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Brooks chiropractic back pain specialist at Soft Health and Healing Clinic will put much effort into communicating with our Brooks chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Soft Health and Healing Clinic promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Brooks back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to engage with exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is well aware all of these types in day-to-day Brooks chiropractic practice! No problem! Soft Health and Healing Clinic comes up with fitting approaches for all these types to participate in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Soft Health and Healing Clinic! We’ve seen it before. If we can get a Brooks back pain patient doing what he wants to do gets him motivated! Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows that if a Brooks back pain patient does not like to lift weights, he will not lift weights. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows that if a Brooks back pain patient enjoys walking her dog, she’ll walk. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Soft Health and Healing Clinic will listen to you and work with you to discover your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
