keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients reported that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were additional
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Lynchburg back pain patients get Lynchburg back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Palmer Chiropractic Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Lynchburg
chiropractor must go all out to take
care of the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Palmer Chiropractic Center is ready and able to do just that to help our Lynchburg back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
