Lynchburg Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is a worthy quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, seeking a bit of guidance more often is better. Palmer Chiropractic Center is ready to be your guide! Lynchburg back pain sufferers can rely on Palmer Chiropractic Center to assemble, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


Research shows that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it is not put in to practice enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Lynchburg back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value walking more like that!


A recent report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and once a week - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our Lynchburg back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There is always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Lynchburg chiropractor is an experienced Lynchburg back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
