Motivations Role in Lynchburg Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Lynchburg back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Lynchburg back pain relief. Your Lynchburg chiropractor knows this well. Palmer Chiropractic Center helps each Lynchburg back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – come to terms with exercise that will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Lynchburg back pain specialist, your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center learns the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Lynchburg chiropractic back pain specialist at Palmer Chiropractic Center will work hard on communicating with our Lynchburg chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Palmer Chiropractic Center promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Lynchburg back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the prescribed exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center is well aware all of these types in day-to-day Lynchburg chiropractic practice! No worry! Palmer Chiropractic Center comes up with appropriate approaches for all these types to engage with healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Palmer Chiropractic Center! We’ve witnessed it before. If we can get a Lynchburg back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! Palmer Chiropractic Center knows that if a Lynchburg back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Palmer Chiropractic Center recognizes that if a Lynchburg back pain patient misses pushing his grandchild on the swing, he’ll exercise sufficiently to get him back to swinging the grandkids. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Palmer Chiropractic Center will listen to you and work with you to find your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
