Manchester Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

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!


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!


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. (3) Our Manchester back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, undoubtedly!


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.
