Motivations Role in Largo Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Largo back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Largo back pain relief. Your Largo chiropractor knows this well. Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps each Largo back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – face the fact that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Largo back pain specialist, your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Largo chiropractic back pain specialist at Hollstrom & Associates Inc will put much effort into communicating with our Largo chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Hollstrom & Associates Inc promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Largo back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the prescribed exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc recognizes all of these types in daily Largo chiropractic practice! No problem! Hollstrom & Associates Inc comes up with appropriate approaches for all these types to engage with exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Hollstrom & Associates Inc! We’ve witnessed it before. If we can get a Largo back pain patient doing what she wants to do gets her motivated! Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows that if a Largo back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Hollstrom & Associates Inc recognizes that if a Largo back pain patient misses being able to push his grandchild on the swing, he will exercise sufficiently to get him back to being able to swing the grandkids. Yes?! So what motivates you? Hollstrom & Associates Inc will listen to you and work with you to discover your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a significant difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
