Motivations Role in Watertown Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Watertown back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Watertown back pain relief. Your Watertown chiropractor knows this well. Watertown Wellness Center helps each Watertown back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Watertown back pain specialist, your Watertown chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center discovers the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper presents that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Watertown chiropractic back pain specialist at Watertown Wellness Center will work hard on communicating with our Watertown chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Watertown Wellness Center promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Watertown back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) Watertown Wellness Center recognizes all of these types in day-to-day Watertown chiropractic practice! No fear! Watertown Wellness Center comes up with fitting approaches for all these types to engage with healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Watertown Wellness Center! We have seen it before. If we can get a Watertown back pain patient to do what she wants to do gets her motivated! Watertown Wellness Center knows that if a Watertown back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Watertown Wellness Center knows that if a Watertown back pain patient enjoys walking her dog, she’ll walk. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Watertown Wellness Center will listen to you and work with you to find your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
