Colorado Springs Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It’s a worthy quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, accepting some guidance more often is better. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is ready to be your guide! Colorado Springs back pain sufferers can rely on The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR to establish, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving just for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it is not put in to practice enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Colorado Springs back pain patients may benefit just like these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A recent report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week and once a week - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than one time a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our Colorado Springs back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, no doubt!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There is always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is honored to be chosen for back pain relief.
