Eugene Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It is a worthy quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking some guidance more often is better. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to be your guide! Eugene back pain sufferers can depend on Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic to assemble, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine specially for you!

BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE

Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it is not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Eugene back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value walking more like that!

MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL

A newer report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It states specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Eugene back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, no doubt!

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT PLAN

Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There is always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Eugene chiropractor is an experienced Eugene back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
