Exercise Improves Sleep and Augusta Back Pain

July 31, 2018

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Augusta chiropractic patients come to know that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Augusta chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Augusta back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Great question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than ideal ability. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic wants all Augusta chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Augusta back pain and do what they can for Augusta back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Augusta back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Augusta back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that better sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Augusta back pain specialist, your Augusta chiropractor considers the whole Augusta back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Augusta back pain sufferer.
