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!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
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!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
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 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!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
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. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor is
