Exercise Improves Sleep and Largo Back Pain

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


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Largo back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Great 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 rejuventate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer tackles the next day with less than ideal ability. Hollstrom & Associates Inc desires all Largo chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Largo back pain and do what they can for Largo back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly suggested to Largo back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Largo back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be very useful in managing 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 got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that better sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Largo back pain specialist, your Largo chiropractor considers the whole Largo back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan individualized for each Largo back pain sufferer.
