Exercise Improves Sleep and Fernandina Beach Back Pain

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


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Fernandina Beach back pain can be depressing if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than ideal capability. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic desires all Fernandina Beach chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Fernandina Beach back pain and do what they can for Fernandina Beach back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Fernandina Beach back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Fernandina Beach back pain specialist, your Fernandina Beach chiropractor considers the whole Fernandina Beach back pain patient and examines any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan individualized for each Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer.
