Oxford Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

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!


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!


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. (3) Our Oxford back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


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.
