Independence. It is a worthy
quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, getting
a bit of guidance more often is better. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is ready
to be your guide! Fort Wayne back pain sufferers can rely
on Aaron Chiropractic Clinic to establish, demonstrate and supervise
a pain-relieving exercise routine
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research shows that supervised exercise
therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it
is not used enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence.
(1) Fort Wayne back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back
pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more like that!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent report states that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function compared with
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week
and once a week - to home exercise. It states
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with
once a week PT visits and home exercise alone.
(3) Our Fort Wayne back pain patients would embrace all these
improvements, without a doubt!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal for back
pain management. Independence only takes you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a
tipping point when the pain just can’t be dealt with
any more! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Concerning
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid
prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy sessions. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is honored to partner with
