Exercise Improves Sleep and Montreal Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Montreal chiropractic patients come to know that acting on this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Montreal chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s recognized about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Montreal back pain can be depressing if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than optimal ability. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic desires all Montreal chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Montreal back pain and do what they can for Montreal back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Montreal back pain sufferers to help them find Montreal back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be quite useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Montreal back pain specialist, your Montreal chiropractor considers the whole Montreal back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Montreal back pain sufferer.
