Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic works to inspire our Augusta back pain patients to exercise and keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise. All the patients reported that exercise improved their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They had to keep exercising. The most common issues for not continuing these activities were other health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight to no effect. The community group exercise offered social support and participants kept going to these classes after the study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were so important. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic wants to listen, inspire, and see our Augusta back pain patients get Augusta back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six weeks of twice-a-week (better than one time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought about significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It harkens back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain improved with active, energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That’s what it’s all about at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic! Active, energetic management of back pain!
