Exercise Improves Sleep and Tarrytown Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Tarrytown chiropractic patients come to realize that acting on this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Tarrytown chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What is recognized about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Tarrytown back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer tackles the next day with less than ideal capability. Tarrytown Chiropractic wants all Tarrytown chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Tarrytown back pain and do what they can for Tarrytown back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly suggested to Tarrytown back pain sufferers to help them find Tarrytown back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that improved sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep though they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Tarrytown back pain specialist, your Tarrytown chiropractor considers the whole Tarrytown back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan individualized for each Tarrytown back pain sufferer.
