Fort Wayne Chiropractic Exercise Recommendation Benefits for Sleep and Back Pain

February 23, 2021

Exercise. Fort Wayne back pain sufferers hear the recommendation to exercise often. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recommends it, too. Exercise continues to show its benefit for relief of low back pain and its prevention…and a new report reveals benefit for better sleep quality!


Low back pain is a burden for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers analyze proposed long-term ways to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise tops the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations along with manual therapy and massage. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is the Fort Wayne back pain specialty clinic that many back pain sufferers visit.


Many chronic back pain sufferers visit their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty normal experience. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care typically involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is an interesting statistic called “number to treat” which implies the number of patients with a certain condition who need to have it done the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to report benefit. In this new study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these three options, exercise was the only intervention that showed sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a useful, self-management, non-drug alternative for chronic low back pain patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc always incorporates it in the Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise places some control of chronic low back pain in our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients’ hands.


An additional beneficial patient-controlled alternative is sleep-and-exercise. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is a problem for so many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc often hears our patients talk about sleep difficulties. Sleep is rejuvenating for the body and the mind. Exercise is manytimes prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. An interesting study about the relationship between sleep and exercise features some interesting findings in young women and men. There are differences for each! Men who exercised more frequently reported falling asleep faster, less daytime trouble, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more often went to bed early, experienced improved sleep quality, and described more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is key for so many concerns!
