Independence. It is an admirable
quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting
a bit of guidance more often is better. Wilson Family Chiropractic is ready
to be your guide! Millville back pain sufferers can count
on Wilson Family Chiropractic to set up, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research shows that supervised exercise
therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing
maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it’s not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.
(1) Millville back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value
walking more like that!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent report states that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function in comparison to
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week
and one time weekly - to home exercise. It reports
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with
one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone.
(3) Our Millville back pain patients would welcome all these
improvements, no doubt!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when dealing
with back pain. There is always a
tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with
any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is planned.
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 rarely 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 sessions. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic is honored to partner with
