New Hampshire Spine and Sport hopes to inspire our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients to exercise and keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise. All the patients shared that exercise improved their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They needed to keep doing them. The most common issues for not carrying on with these activities were other health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight to no effect. The community group exercise offered social support and participants kept going to these classes after the study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) New Hampshire Spine and Sport wants to listen, inspire, and watch our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients get Southern New Hampshire back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six weeks of two-times-a-week (better than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought about significant temporary improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It harkens back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active, energetic, non-operative care.
