Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. A lack of exercise is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Montreal back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
also knows that when our Montreal
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the reduction of the spinal canal area due
to degeneration. A recent study revealed
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, had 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 advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability status better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise helped, whether
or not it was conventional!
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. Again,
exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic brings
in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Montreal back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
