Motivations Role in Oxford 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 Oxford back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Oxford back pain relief. Your Oxford chiropractor knows this well. Satterwhite Chiropractic helps each Oxford back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Oxford back pain specialist, your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic learns the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve 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 Oxford chiropractic back pain specialist at Satterwhite Chiropractic will work hard on communicating with our Oxford chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Satterwhite Chiropractic promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Oxford back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is 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 wanting to 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%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the recommended exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic spots all of these types in day-to-day Oxford chiropractic practice! No concern! Satterwhite Chiropractic crafts appropriate approaches for all these types to participate in exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Satterwhite Chiropractic! We’ve seen it before. If we can get a Oxford back pain patient doing what he wants to do gets him motivated! Satterwhite Chiropractic knows that if a Oxford back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Satterwhite Chiropractic recognizes that if a Oxford back pain patient misses being able to push his grandchild on the swing, he’ll exercise sufficiently to get him back to swinging the grandkids. Right?! So what motivates you? Satterwhite Chiropractic will listen to you and work with you to find 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?
