No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More McHenry Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. A lack of exercise is a risk for deteriorating pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Spengel Chiropractic sees many McHenry back pain patients in pain who also deal with depression. Spengel Chiropractic also recognizes that when our McHenry chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is the decrease of the spinal canal area due to degeneration. A recent study reported that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also found to a risk factor for the progression of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Spengel Chiropractic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.

EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability level better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise helped, conventional or not!

EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION

For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as a little down when their back pain hangs around a while. It is not uncommon. Again, exercise to the rescue! Another study showed 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) Spengel Chiropractic incorporates as many positive approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our McHenry back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
