OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
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.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES 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! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Carrolltown
