Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Exercise Recommendation Benefits for Sleep and Back Pain

Exercise. Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers get the advice to exercise a lot. Spinal Care Clinic recommends it, also. Exercise keeps showing its benefit for low back pain relief and prevention…plus a new report shows benefit for better sleep quality!


Low back pain is a burden for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers analyze suggested long-term ways to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise tops the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations with manual therapy and massage in that list as well. (1) Spinal Care Clinic offers itself as the Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialty clinic to which many back pain sufferers see.


Countless chronic back pain sufferers find themselves going to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care usually involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is an interesting statistic called “number to treat” which implies the number of patients with a certain condition who need to undergo the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to report benefit. In this new study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these three options, exercise was the only intervention that demonstrated sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a useful, self-management, non-drug alternative for chronic low back pain patients. Spinal Care Clinic always incorporates it in the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise puts some control of chronic low back pain in our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients’ hands.


An additional advantageous patient-controlled alternative is the sleep and exercise option. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients. Spinal Care Clinic often hears our patients talk about sleep difficulties. Sleep is renewing for the body and the mind. Exercise is manytimes prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. A noteworthy study about the relationship between sleep and exercise features some interesting findings in young men and women. There are differences for each! Men who exercised more frequently reported falling asleep quicker, less daytime issues, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more frequently went to bed early, experienced better sleep quality, and described more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is key for so many concerns!
