San Jose Chiropractic Exercise Recommendation Benefits for Sleep and Back Pain

Exercise. San Jose back pain sufferers hear the advice to exercise a lot. Chiropractic Solutions recommends it, too. Exercise continues to show its benefit for relief of low back pain and its prevention…plus a new report reveals benefit for better sleep quality!


Low back pain is a burden for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers investigate proposed long-term methods to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise tops the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations along with manual therapy and massage. (1) Chiropractic Solutions is the San Jose back pain specialty clinic to which many back pain sufferers go.


Countless chronic back pain sufferers find themselves going to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care often involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which implies the number of patients with a certain condition who need to undergo the treatment recommendation for 1 of the treatment recipients to report benefit. In this new study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these 3 options, exercise was the only intervention that showed sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a valuable, self-management, non-drug alternative for chronic low back pain patients. Chiropractic Solutions always incorporates it in the San Jose chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise puts some control of chronic low back pain in our San Jose chiropractic patients’ hands.


An additional advantageous patient-controlled option is the sleep and exercise option. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many San Jose chiropractic patients. Chiropractic Solutions often hears our patients discuss sleep difficulties. Sleep is rejuvenating for the body and the mind. Exercise is often prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. An interesting study about the relationship between sleep and exercise features some interesting findings in young women and men. Each is different! Men who exercised more often reported falling asleep faster, less daytime trouble, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more often went to bed early, had better sleep quality, and reported more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is key for so many concerns!
