Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It is an admirable quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, seeking some guidance more often is better. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to be your guide! Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers can rely on Amelia Chiropractic Clinic to set up, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy allows significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it’s not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Fernandina Beach back pain patients may benefit just like these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A recent report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared 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 two times a week 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 once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Fernandina Beach back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, no doubt!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There is always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be dealt with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. 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!) Regarding exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are very common in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief.
