Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch. Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Augusta back pain patients in pain who also deal with depression. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic also understands that when our Augusta chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and mind.
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is the lessening of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A recent study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise was also found to a risk factor for the advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability level better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Note though that exercise did help, whether or not it was conventional!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as a little down when their back pain hangs around longer than desired. It’s not unusual. Again, exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic brings in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Augusta back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
