Independence. It’s an admirable
quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, seeking
some guidance more often is better. Satterwhite Chiropractic is prepared
to be your guide! Oxford back pain sufferers can depend
on Satterwhite Chiropractic to assemble, demonstrate and supervise
a pain-relieving exercise routine
just for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research shows that supervised exercise
therapy allows significant symptom relief and improved
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it
is not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence.
(1) Oxford back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value
walking more in such a way!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A newer report states that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function compared with
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week
and once a week - to home exercise. It reports
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than
once a week PT visits and home exercise alone.

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal for back
pain management. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There is always a
tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with
any more! Then a trip to the doctor is planned.
Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain
sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting
care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Regarding
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid
prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy visits. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic is honored to partner with
