Montreal Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is an admirable quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, getting a bit of guidance more often is better. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is equipped to be your guide! Montreal back pain sufferers can rely on Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic to assemble, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving just for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it is not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Montreal back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value walking more in such a way!


A recent study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and one time weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than one time a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our Montreal back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There is always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy visits.
