Exercise Improves Sleep and Colorado Springs Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Colorado Springs chiropractic patients come to know that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having Colorado Springs 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 prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is related to 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 tackles the next day with less than ideal capability. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR wants all Colorado Springs chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Colorado Springs back pain and do what they can for Colorado Springs back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly suggested to Colorado Springs back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Colorado Springs back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful 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 just 8 weeks in a row, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that improved 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 spent more time lying down. (3) As your Colorado Springs back pain specialist, your Colorado Springs chiropractor takes a look at the whole Colorado Springs back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy personalized for each Colorado Springs back pain sufferer.
