Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Spinal Care Clinic takes care of many Burlington and Hamilton back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Spinal Care Clinic
also understands that when our Burlington and Hamilton
chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the reduction of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A new study revealed
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Spinal Care Clinic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability status more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise did help, 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 sad when their back pain hangs around longer
than desired. It is not unusual. Once more,
exercise to the rescue! Another study showed 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) Spinal Care Clinic brings
in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
