Motivations Role in Burlington and Hamilton Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief. Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor knows this well. Spinal Care Clinic helps each Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly keep at bay future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist, your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic finds the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper presents that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic back pain specialist at Spinal Care Clinic will work hard on communicating with our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Spinal Care Clinic promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to engage with exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) Spinal Care Clinic recognizes all of these types in daily Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic practice! No problem! Spinal Care Clinic comes up with appropriate approaches for all these types to participate in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Spinal Care Clinic! We have seen it before. If we can get a Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient to do what she wants to do gets her motivated! Spinal Care Clinic knows that if a Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he will not lift weights. Spinal Care Clinic knows that if a Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she’ll walk. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Spinal Care Clinic will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a significant difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
