Motivation’s Role in Ashburn Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Ashburn back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Ashburn back pain relief. Your Ashburn chiropractor knows this well. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps each Ashburn back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – face the fact that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly fend off future episodes of back pain.

MOTIVATION AND COMMUNICATION

Often it comes down to communication. As your Ashburn back pain specialist, your Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper presents that communication develops exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Ashburn chiropractic back pain specialist at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn will put much effort into communicating with our Ashburn chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn promises!

MOTIVATION AND NON-SPECIFIC BACK PAIN

Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Ashburn back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the prescribed exercise only because they have to. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is well aware all of these types in daily Ashburn chiropractic practice! No worry! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn designs fitting approaches for all these types to take part in exercise in a healthy way.
