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
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.
