Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise is a risk for worsening
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR takes care of many Colorado Springs back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
also understands that when our Colorado Springs
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is
the reduction of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A new study revealed
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability status more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise helped, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as
a little blue when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not unusual. Again,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Colorado Springs back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
