Is exercise really all that? Back pain sufferers ask,
especially those who don’t enjoy physical activity! May Millville back pain sufferers are not exercisers by
nature. (Are you?) Your Millville chiropractor meets all types
of back pain sufferers and knows all sorts of physical activity
options that may be more appealing. At Wilson Family Chiropractic we try
to pair the exercise routine to the chronic back pain patient
and symptomatology to maximize the outcomes of
exercise shown in research studies to be beneficial
in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.
3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?
What you do in your non-work hours impacts
your back pain experience! Let’s first define
sedentary versus physically active.
Researchers in one study described physically active folks as
those who were more active in their leisure time. They devoted 3
hours of their leisure time a day being physically active. Sedentary
folks spent 3 hours or more a day of their leisure time sitting.
Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain compared
with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your
off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk
with a friend, and talk!
ACTIVE AND SEDENTARY BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR ACTIVITY
We’re all different! Regarding back pain, the difference shines even more in some
aspects. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows a few chronic low back
pain patients are more prone to exercising and
being physically active than others who tend to be more
sedentary. What is the difference in these folks? Researchers
found a couple things: more physically active ones (those
who perform at least 150 minutes of moderate or 75 minutes
of vigorous physical activity per week) experience lower
body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary
folks (those who perform more than 8 hours of time in sedentary
activities a day) are more likely to have lesser
levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics
need to be considered when taking care of back pain patients and
encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How
can Wilson Family Chiropractic assist our more sedentary back pain sufferers?
these little bits of information is helpful! Your Millville
chiropractor is right here with you. Let us know your ideas
on how we can assist you!

Pain relief and functional limitation improvement were found. (3)
