Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is a worthy quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting a bit of guidance more often is better. Spinal Care Clinic is equipped to be your guide! Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers can rely on Spinal Care Clinic to set up, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving just for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it’s not put in to practice enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value walking more like that!


A recent study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and one time a week - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only takes you so far when dealing with back pain. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be dealt 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!) Regarding exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently 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) Spinal Care Clinic is honored to partner with you for back pain relief.
