Millville Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

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!


Research shows that supervised exercise therapy allows 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!


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!


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 you for back pain relief.
