Manahawkin Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It is a worthy quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting some guidance more often is better. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is prepared to be your guide! Manahawkin back pain sufferers can rely on Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to establish, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!

BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE

Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces 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 underutilized. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Manahawkin 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!

MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL

A recent study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It states specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with one time a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our Manahawkin back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, undoubtedly!

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT PLAN

Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There is always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are very common in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is honored to partner with you for back pain relief.
