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

Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch. Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do something. No exercising is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees many Eugene back pain patients in pain who also deal with depression. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic also recognizes that when our Eugene chiropractic patients do something, they get better 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 discovered to a risk factor for the progression of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Note though that exercise helped, conventional or not!

EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION

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