to inspire our Oxford back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain at bay.
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 study
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients shared that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not carrying on with these activities were additional
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants kept going to these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Oxford back pain patients get Oxford back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Satterwhite Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Oxford
chiropractor must go all-in to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Satterwhite Chiropractic is ready and willing to do just that to help our Oxford back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
