Exercise Improves Sleep and Watertown Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Watertown chiropractic patients come to realize that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Watertown chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Watertown back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than optimal ability. Watertown Wellness Center wants all Watertown chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Watertown back pain and do what they can for Watertown back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly suggested to Watertown back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Watertown back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be quite valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that better sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Watertown back pain specialist, your Watertown chiropractor takes a look at the whole Watertown back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy individualized for each Watertown back pain sufferer.
