Augusta Chiropractic Care Urges Exercise for Back Pain Sufferers and Post-Menopausal Women Alike

August 27, 2019

“I’m 60/65/70/75/80 years old. Do I have to keep exercising?” Absolutely! The old saying of “move it or lose it” rings true! Exercise is an integral part of the Augusta chiropractic treatment plan at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic. And we know our Augusta chiropractic patients’ commitment to exercise comes and goes. We understand and keep cultivating our patients’ commitment to keep exercising. We know that once you realize how good you feel with daily exercise, you will keep doing it!


For post-menopausal women it is even more important to keep exercising. In the latest|a new study of post-menopausal women with vertebral fractures, spinal pain, back extensor muscle strength, trunk-arm endurance, kyphosis, functional mobility, and quality of life all improve with exercise, specifically a supervised rather than a home-based exercise plan. (1) Would you agree with Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic that if someone is supervising your exercise, you’ll be more likely to exercise and more likely to do it right? We all need a little extra prompting to do what we ought to do at times. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic does that for our Augusta back pain patients!


No matter their age, Augusta back pain patients do better with exercise. Reviewers of the exercise-for-back-pain-relief medical literature give in to the published evidence and propose that patients perform exercises they like and can do simply. Research’s best-evidence on therapy for chronic low back pain asserts that spinal manipulation and pain neuroscience education combined with exercise with or without psychological therapy is advantageous. Including the psychological part to exercise seems to generate better outcomes that last longer. (2) It’s never a bad idea|It never hurts to reach out for help with the emotional aspect of back pain and neck pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic appreciates the opportunity to direct back pain patients to receive the care they need.
