Exercise. Fort Wayne back pain sufferers get the advice to exercise a lot. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic recommends it, too. Exercise continues to show its benefit for relief of low back pain and its prevention…plus a new report reveals benefit for improved sleep quality!


Low back pain is a problem for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers investigate suggested long-term methods to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise leads the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations with manual therapy and massage in that list as well. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is the Fort Wayne back pain specialty clinic to which many back pain sufferers see.


Many chronic back pain sufferers visit their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty normal experience. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care typically involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which implies the number of patients with a certain condition who need to have it done the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to get benefit. In this recent study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these 3 options, exercise was the only intervention that showed continued chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a useful, self-management, non-drug option for chronic low back pain patients. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic always includes it in the Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise places some control of chronic low back pain in our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients’ hands.


Another advantageous patient-controlled alternative is sleep-and-exercise. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic often hears our patients discuss sleep difficulties. Sleep is renewing for the body and the mind. Exercise is often prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. A noteworthy study about the relationship between sleep and exercise features some interesting findings in young men and women. Each is different! Men who exercised more frequently reported falling asleep faster, less daytime trouble, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more frequently went to bed early, experienced improved sleep quality, and described more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is important for so many concerns!
