No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Lynchburg Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch. Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do something. A lack of exercise is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Palmer Chiropractic Center takes care of many Lynchburg back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Palmer Chiropractic Center also understands that when our Lynchburg chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s the lessening of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A recent study reported that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those who had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also found to a risk factor for the advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Palmer Chiropractic Center helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.

EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved their functional disability status more with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Note though that exercise did help, conventional or not!

EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION

For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as a little sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not uncommon. Once more, exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center brings in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Lynchburg back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
