Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise is a risk for worsening
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC sees many Fort Wayne back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC
also recognizes that when our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is
the decrease of the spinal canal area due
to degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability level more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise helped, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as
a little sad when their back pain sticks around longer
than desired. It is not uncommon. Once more,
exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Fort Wayne back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
