Plainville Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

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!


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!


A newer 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 two times 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!


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.
