Exercise Improves Sleep and Manchester Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Manchester chiropractic patients come to know that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Manchester chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Manchester back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than ideal ability. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries wants all Manchester chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Manchester back pain and do what they can for Manchester back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Manchester back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Manchester back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that better sleep quality is linked to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep though they used more time lying down. (3) As your Manchester back pain specialist, your Manchester chiropractor considers the whole Manchester back pain patient and examines any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy individualized for each Manchester back pain sufferer.
