Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees many Carrolltown back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
also recognizes that when our Carrolltown
chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the reduction of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability status better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as
a little blue when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not unusual. Again,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation brings
in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Carrolltown back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
