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
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It’s
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.
