What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is different.
Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There is something for everyone! Vancouver Spine Care Centre works
to inspire our Vancouver back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients shared that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They had to keep doing them. The most common issues
for not continuing these activities were other
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants kept going to these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Vancouver back pain patients get Vancouver back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Vancouver Spine Care Centre! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Vancouver
chiropractor must everything possible to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Vancouver Spine Care Centre is ready and able to do just that to bring
relief to our Vancouver back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
