Motivations Role in Eugene Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Eugene back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Eugene back pain relief. Your Eugene chiropractor knows this well. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic helps each Eugene back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Eugene back pain specialist, your Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic learns the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication improves exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Eugene chiropractic back pain specialist at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will work hard on communicating with our Eugene chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Eugene back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recognizes all of these types in day-to-day Eugene chiropractic practice! No problem! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic comes up with appropriate approaches for all these types to participate in exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic! We’ve witnessed it before. If we can get a Eugene back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows that if a Eugene back pain patient doesn’t like doing squats, she won’t do them. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recognizes that if a Eugene back pain patient misses being able to push his grandchild on the swing, he’ll exercise sufficiently to get him back to swinging the grandkids. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
