help. There is something for everyone! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn hopes
to inspire our Ashburn back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients stated that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They needed to keep doing them. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Ashburn back pain patients get Ashburn back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (better than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant temporary 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 disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That’s what
it is all about at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Ashburn
