Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Minster Chiropractic Center sees many Minster back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Minster Chiropractic Center
also knows that when our Minster
chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is
the decrease of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Minster Chiropractic Center helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability status more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise helped, whether
or not it was conventional!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as
a little sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It is not unusual. Again,
exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Minster Chiropractic Center brings
in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Minster back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
