What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s unique.
Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There’s something for everyone! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic hopes
to inspire our Eugene back pain patients to exercise and
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized 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 carrying on with these activities were other
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little
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 of great importance to them. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Eugene back pain patients get Eugene 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 once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Eugene
chiropractor must everything possible to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is ready and willing to do just that to help our Eugene back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
