Exercise Improves Sleep and Fort Wayne Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Fort Wayne chiropractic patients come to realize that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression alter the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Fort Wayne back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer tackles the next day with less than optimal capability. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic wants all Fort Wayne chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Fort Wayne back pain and do what they can for Fort Wayne back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly recommended to Fort Wayne back pain sufferers to help them find Fort Wayne back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be very useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks in a row, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that better sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Fort Wayne back pain specialist, your Fort Wayne chiropractor takes a look at the whole Fort Wayne back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Fort Wayne back pain sufferer.
