Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for worsening
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc takes care of many Largo back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Hollstrom & Associates Inc
also understands that when our Largo
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is
the decrease of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A recent study revealed
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also found to a risk factor for the advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability level better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise did help, whether
or not it was conventional!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves
a little sad when their back pain sticks around longer
than desired. It’s not unusual. Again,
exercise helps! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Largo back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
