Motivations Role in McHenry 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 McHenry back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for McHenry back pain relief. Your McHenry chiropractor knows this well. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps each McHenry 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 fend off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your McHenry back pain specialist, your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic finds the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper reveals that communication improves exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your McHenry chiropractic back pain specialist at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic will work hard on communicating with our McHenry chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some McHenry 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%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the prescribed exercise only because they have to. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic spots all of these types in day-to-day McHenry chiropractic practice! No fear! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic crafts fitting approaches for all these types to participate in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to OrthoIllinois Chiropractic! We have witnessed it before. If we can get a McHenry back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows that if a McHenry back pain patient does not like doing squats, she won’t do them. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recognizes that if a McHenry back pain patient misses pushing his grandchild on the swing, he will exercise sufficiently to get him back to swinging the grandkids. Yes?! So what makes you tick? OrthoIllinois Chiropractic will listen to you and work with you to discover your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll 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?
