Motivations Role in Fort Wayne Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Fort Wayne back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Fort Wayne back pain relief. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor knows this well. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps each Fort Wayne back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly fend off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Fort Wayne back pain specialist, your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc finds the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication improves exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Fort Wayne chiropractic back pain specialist at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will work hard on communicating with our Fort Wayne chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Fort Wayne back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to engage with exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc spots all of these types in daily Fort Wayne chiropractic practice! No problem! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc designs appropriate approaches for all these types to take part in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc! We have seen it before. If we can get a Fort Wayne back pain patient to do what she wants to do gets her motivated! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows that if a Fort Wayne back pain patient doesn’t like doing squats, she will not do them. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows that if a Fort Wayne back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she will walk. Sound about right?! So what motivates you? Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
