Carrolltown Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s different. Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all help. There’s something for everyone! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation works to inspire our Carrolltown back pain patients to exercise and keep their back pain at bay.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise. All the participants stated that exercise bettered their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They had to keep exercising. The most common issues for not carrying on with these activities were additional health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little to no effect. The community group exercise provided social support and participants continued these classes after the study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were so important. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation wants to listen, inspire, and see our Carrolltown back pain patients get Carrolltown back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.


Another study found that six weeks of twice-a-week (better than one time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain improved with active, energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That’s what it’s all about at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation! Active, energetic management of back pain!
