Independence. It’s an admirable
quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking
a little guidance more often is better. Layden Chiropractic is equipped
to be your guide! Plainville back pain sufferers can count
on Layden Chiropractic to assemble, demonstrate and supervise
a pain-relieving exercise routine
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy allows significant symptom relief and improved
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it
is not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.
(1) Plainville back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back
pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more like that!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent study reports 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 evaluated a more specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week
and one time a week - to home exercise. It states
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with
once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively.
(3) Our Plainville back pain patients would welcome all these
improvements, without a doubt!
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 dealing
with back pain. There is always a
tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with
any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for resulting
care. (That was the subject 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 very common in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy visits. (4) Layden Chiropractic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Plainville chiropractor is
