No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Fort Wayne Pain & Disease Progression

September 24, 2019

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. No exercising 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 understands that when our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and mind.


Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s the reduction of the spinal canal area due to degeneration. A recent study reported that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also found to a risk factor for the progression of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.


Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved their functional disability level better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, conventional or not!


For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves a little sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It is not unusual. Once more, exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (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.
