OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients reported that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were other
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants kept going to these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Manahawkin back pain patients get Manahawkin back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the benchmark paper by Weber who explained that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it is all about at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Manahawkin
chiropractor must everything possible to manage the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is ready and able to do just that to bring
relief to our Manahawkin back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
