Tonawanda Chiropractic Exercise Recommendation Benefits for Sleep and Back Pain

Exercise. Tonawanda back pain sufferers hear the recommendation to exercise often. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation recommends it, also. Exercise keeps showing its benefit for relief of low back pain and its prevention…plus a new report shows benefit for improved sleep quality!


Low back pain is a problem for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers examine proposed long-term methods to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise tops the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations with manual therapy and massage in that list as well. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is the Tonawanda back pain specialty clinic to which many back pain sufferers see.


Numerous chronic back pain sufferers find themselves going to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty normal experience. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care often involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is an interesting statistic called “number to treat” which denotes the number of patients with a certain condition who need to undergo the treatment recommendation for 1 of the treatment recipients to find benefit. In this recent study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these 3 options, exercise was the only intervention that showed continued chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a useful, self-management, non-drug option for chronic low back pain patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation always incorporates it in the Tonawanda chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise puts some control of chronic low back pain in our Tonawanda chiropractic patients’ hands.


Another advantageous patient-controlled option is sleep-and-exercise. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many Tonawanda chiropractic patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation often hears our patients talk about sleep difficulties. Sleep is rejuvenating for the body and the mind. Exercise is manytimes prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. A noteworthy study about the relationship between sleep and exercise features some interesting findings in young women and men. Each is different! Men who exercised more frequently reported falling asleep faster, less daytime trouble, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more frequently went to bed earlier, experienced better sleep quality, and described more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger.
