No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Oxford 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. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees many Oxford back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Satterwhite Chiropractic also understands that when our Oxford chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is the lessening of the spinal canal area due to degeneration. A recent study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those who had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also discovered to a risk factor for the advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Satterwhite Chiropractic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.

EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved their functional disability status better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Note though that exercise helped, 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 find themselves a little down when their back pain sticks around a while. It’s not uncommon. Once more, exercise helps! Another study reported that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic incorporates as many positive approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Oxford back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
