Motivations Role in San Jose Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each San Jose back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for San Jose back pain relief. Your San Jose chiropractor knows this well. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions helps each San Jose back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – come to terms with exercise that will relieve and even control and possibly keep at bay future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your San Jose back pain specialist, your San Jose chiropractor at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper reveals that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your San Jose chiropractic back pain specialist at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions will put much effort into communicating with our San Jose chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some San Jose back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions recognizes all of these types in day-to-day San Jose chiropractic practice! No concern! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions designs fitting approaches for all these types to participate in exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to inspire a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to McMurray Chiropractic Solutions! We have witnessed it before. If we can get a San Jose back pain patient doing what he wants to do gets him motivated! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows that if a San Jose back pain patient doesn’t like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows that if a San Jose back pain patient enjoys walking her dog, she will walk. Right?! So what motivates you? McMurray Chiropractic Solutions will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
