No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Southern New Hampshire Pain & Disease Progression

September 24, 2019

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. No exercising is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. New Hampshire Spine and Sport sees many Southern New Hampshire back pain patients in pain who also deal with depression. New Hampshire Spine and Sport also understands that when our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.


Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is the decrease of the spinal canal area due to degeneration. A recent study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise was also discovered to a risk factor for the advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! New Hampshire Spine and Sport helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.


Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability status more with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Note though that exercise helped, whether or not it was conventional!


For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves a little down when their back pain sticks around longer than desired. It is not unusual. Again, exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) New Hampshire Spine and Sport incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
