Exercise Improves Sleep and Plainville Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Plainville chiropractic patients come to know that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Plainville chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What is known about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Plainville back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than optimal capability. Layden Chiropractic desires all Plainville chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Plainville back pain and do what they can for Plainville back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Plainville back pain sufferers to help them find Plainville back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks in a row, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that improved sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Plainville back pain specialist, your Plainville chiropractor considers the whole Plainville back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each Plainville back pain sufferer.
