Exercise Improves Sleep and Eugene Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Eugene chiropractic patients come to realize that following this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Eugene chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.

TOO LITTLE SLEEP, TOO MUCH PAIN

What is known about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Eugene back pain can be depressing if it goes on 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 stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer tackles the next day with less than optimal capability. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic desires all Eugene chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Eugene back pain and do what they can for Eugene back pain relief.

WHAT HELPS SLEEP AND PAIN

Exercise is commonly recommended to Eugene back pain sufferers to help them find Eugene back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that better 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 spent more time lying down. (3) As your Eugene back pain specialist, your Eugene chiropractor takes a look at the whole Eugene back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan individualized for each Eugene back pain sufferer.
