to inspire our Colorado Springs back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the participants reported that exercise improved
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 other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Colorado Springs back pain patients get Colorado Springs back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Colorado Springs
chiropractor must go all-in to take
care of the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is ready and able to do just that to bring
relief to our Colorado Springs back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
