OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
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 stated that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep doing them. The most common reasons
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants continued 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Manchester back pain patients get Manchester back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Manchester
chiropractor must go all out to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is ready and able to do just that to help our Manchester back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
