Vancouver Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It’s an admirable quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, seeking a little guidance more often is better. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is ready to be your guide! Vancouver back pain sufferers can rely on Vancouver Spine Care Centre to establish, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!

BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE

Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it’s underutilized. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Vancouver back pain patients may benefit just like these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value walking more in such a way!

MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL

A recent 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 in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Vancouver back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, without a doubt!

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT PLAN

Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There is always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent 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 most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) Vancouver Spine Care Centre is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Vancouver chiropractor is a well-trained Vancouver back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
