Exercise. Plainville back pain sufferers hear the recommendation to exercise often. Layden Chiropractic recommends it, also. Exercise keeps showing its benefit for relief of low back pain and its prevention…and a new report shows benefit for better 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 investigate proposed long-term ways to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise tops the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations along with manual therapy and massage. (1) Layden Chiropractic is the Plainville back pain specialty clinic to which many back pain sufferers see.


Many chronic back pain sufferers find themselves going to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care usually involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which indicates the number of patients with a certain condition who need to have it done the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to find benefit. In this new 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 sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a valued, self-management, non-drug alternative for chronic low back pain patients. Layden Chiropractic always incorporates it in the Plainville chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise places some control of chronic low back pain in our Plainville chiropractic patients’ hands.


Another advantageous patient-controlled alternative is the sleep and exercise option. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many Plainville chiropractic patients. Layden Chiropractic often hears our patients discuss sleep difficulties. Sleep is rejuvenating for the body and the mind. Exercise is often prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. A noteworthy study about the relationship between sleep and exercise highlights some interesting findings in young women and men. There are differences for each! Men who exercised more frequently reported falling asleep quicker, less daytime trouble, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more frequently went to bed earlier, experienced better sleep quality, and reported more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is important for so many issues!
