Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Lynchburg back pain sufferers especially for Lynchburg post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable reduction in pain and reoperation rate states a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal a week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain.
