McHenry Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is an admirable quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, getting a bit of guidance more often is better. Spengel Chiropractic is prepared to be your guide! McHenry back pain sufferers can count on Spengel Chiropractic to set up, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!

BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE

Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it is not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) McHenry back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!

MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL

A recent report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our McHenry back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, without a doubt!

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT PLAN

Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only takes you so far when dealing with back pain. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any longer! Then a trip to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid prescriptions are very common in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits. (4) Spengel Chiropractic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your McHenry chiropractor is an experienced McHenry back pain specialist whose treatment plan incorporates the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
