San Jose Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

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!


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!


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!


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 you for back pain relief.
