“I’m 60/65/70/75/80 years old. Do I have to keep exercising?” You sure do! The old saying of “move it or lose it” applies! Exercise is an integral part of the Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment plan at New Hampshire Spine and Sport. And we know our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients wax and wane on their commitment to exercise. We understand and keep cultivating our patients’ commitment to keep exercising. We know that once you realize how amazing you feel with exercise as part of your daily life, you will keep it up!


For post-menopausal women it is even more important to keep exercising. In the latest|a recent study of post-menopausal women with vertebral fractures, spinal pain, back extensor muscle strength, trunk-arm endurance, kyphosis, functional mobility, and quality of life all get better with exercise, particularly a supervised rather than a home-based exercise plan. (1) Would you agree with New Hampshire Spine and Sport that if there is supervision, the exercise is more likely to be done and done the right way? We all need a little extra encouragement to do what we ought to do at times. New Hampshire Spine and Sport does that for our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients!


No matter their age, Southern New Hampshire back pain patients benefit from exercise. Reviewers of the exercise-for-back-pain-relief medical literature yield to the published facts and propose that patients perform exercises they like and can do simply. Research’s best-evidence on therapy for chronic low back pain says that spinal manipulation and pain neuroscience education missed with exercise with or without psychological therapy is best. Including the psychological component to exercise seems to deliver better outcomes that are more long-term. (2) It is never a bad idea|It never hurts to get help for feelings and emotions during difficult times like experiencing back pain or neck pain. New Hampshire Spine and Sport values the opportunity to guide back pain patients to find the care they need.
