OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
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 personalized exercise.
All the patients shared that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep doing them. The most common issues
for not carrying on with these activities were additional
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) Watertown Wellness Center wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Watertown back pain patients get Watertown back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Watertown Wellness Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Watertown
chiropractor must everything possible to take
care of the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Watertown Wellness Center is ready and able to do just that to help our Watertown back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
