Exercise Improves Sleep and Lynchburg Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Lynchburg chiropractic patients come to understand that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Lynchburg 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 affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Lynchburg back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to 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 undertakes the next day with less than optimal capability. Palmer Chiropractic Center wants all Lynchburg chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Lynchburg back pain and do what they can for Lynchburg back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Lynchburg back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Lynchburg back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be very valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study 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 discovered that improved sleep quality is linked to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Lynchburg back pain specialist, your Lynchburg chiropractor takes a look at the whole Lynchburg back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Lynchburg back pain sufferer.
