Independence. It’s a worthy
quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking
a little guidance more often is better. Chiropractic Solutions is ready
to be your guide! San Jose back pain sufferers can count
on Chiropractic Solutions to assemble, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
just for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy allows significant symptom relief and improved
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing
maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it
is not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.
(1) San Jose back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more in such a way!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A newer study reports that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function compared with
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week
and one time a week - to home exercise. It reports
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with
one time a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively.
(3) Our San Jose back pain patients would welcome all these
improvements, without a doubt!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal for back
pain management. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a
tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with
any longer! Then a trip to the doctor is planned.
Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain
sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Concerning
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid
prescriptions are very common in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy visits. (4) Chiropractic Solutions is honored to partner with
