OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the participants reported that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They needed to keep doing them. The most common issues
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants kept going to 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 of great importance to them. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Minster back pain patients get Minster back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (better 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 comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain improved with active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Minster Chiropractic Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Minster
chiropractor must everything possible to take
care of the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
