Independence. It’s a worthy
quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, accepting
a bit of guidance more often is better. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is equipped
to be your guide! Manchester back pain sufferers can depend
on Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries to set up, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy produces significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it
is not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.
(1) Manchester back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back
pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value
walking more like that!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent report states 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 evaluated 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 a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than
once a week PT visits and home exercise alone.

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when dealing
with back pain. There’s always a
tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with
any more! Then a trip to the doctor is arranged.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for resulting
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Regarding
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid
prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy sessions. (4) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Manchester chiropractor is
