Exercise Improves Sleep and San Jose Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! San Jose chiropractic patients come to understand that following this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their San Jose chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing San Jose back pain can be depressing if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is associated with 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 attempts the next day with less than optimal capability. Chiropractic Solutions desires all San Jose chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their San Jose back pain and do what they can for San Jose back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to San Jose back pain sufferers in aiding their path to San Jose back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very valuable in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep though they spent more time lying down. (3) As your San Jose back pain specialist, your San Jose chiropractor considers the whole San Jose back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each San Jose back pain sufferer.
