Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Patients who suffer with pain 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.
Malverne Health & Wellness takes care of many Malverne back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Malverne Health & Wellness
also recognizes that when our Malverne
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the decrease of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack of therapeutic exercise
was also found to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Malverne Health & Wellness helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability status more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves
a little sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not unusual. Again,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Malverne Health & Wellness incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Malverne back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
