No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Ashburn Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. A lack of exercise is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn takes care of many Ashburn back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn also knows that when our Ashburn chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is the reduction of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A recent study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also found to a risk factor for the progression of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.

EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved their functional disability level more with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, conventional or not!

EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION

For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves a little down when their back pain sticks around longer than desired. It is not uncommon. Again, exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn brings in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Ashburn back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
