What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s different.
Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There is something for everyone! Spengel Chiropractic works
to inspire our McHenry back pain patients to exercise and
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients shared that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They had to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were additional
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) Spengel Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and see
our McHenry back pain patients get McHenry back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That is what
it is all about at Spengel Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your McHenry
chiropractor must go all-in to manage the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Spengel Chiropractic is ready and willing to do just that to help our McHenry back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
