Independence. It’s an admirable
quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, getting
some guidance more often is better. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is equipped
to be your guide! Tonawanda back pain sufferers can rely
on Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to assemble, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy allows significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it’s underutilized.
Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence.
(1) Tonawanda back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more in such a way!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A newer report states that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function compared with
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week
and once a week - to home exercise. It reports
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than
once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively.

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal for back
pain management. Independence only takes you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a
tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with
any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is planned.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Concerning
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid
prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy sessions. (4) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is honored to partner with
