Exercise Improves Sleep and Millville Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Millville chiropractic patients come to know that following this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Millville chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Having Millville back pain can be depressing if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than ideal ability. Wilson Family Chiropractic wants all Millville chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Millville back pain and do what they can for Millville back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly suggested to Millville back pain sufferers to help them find Millville back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be quite valuable in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks straight, 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 habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Millville back pain specialist, your Millville chiropractor considers the whole Millville back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Millville back pain sufferer.
