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
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is
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.
