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! Tarrytown Chiropractic works
to inspire our Tarrytown back pain patients to exercise and
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
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 personalized exercise.
All the patients reported that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants kept going to 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 so
important. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Tarrytown back pain patients get Tarrytown back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six
weeks of twice-a-week (better than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in 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 explained 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 Tarrytown Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Tarrytown
chiropractor must go all out to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Tarrytown Chiropractic is ready and able to do just that to help our Tarrytown back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
