Exercise Improves Sleep and Burlington and Hamilton Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients come to realize that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having Burlington and Hamilton back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than ideal ability. Spinal Care Clinic wants all Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Burlington and Hamilton back pain and do what they can for Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers to help them find Burlington and Hamilton 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 review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that improved sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist, your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor takes a look at the whole Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient and examines any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan individualized for each Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferer.
