Motivations Role in Malverne Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Malverne back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Malverne back pain relief. Your Malverne chiropractor knows this well. Malverne Health & Wellness helps each Malverne back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly keep at bay future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Malverne back pain specialist, your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness discovers the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication improves exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Malverne chiropractic back pain specialist at Malverne Health & Wellness will work hard on communicating with our Malverne chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Malverne Health & Wellness promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Malverne back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to engage with exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the prescribed exercise only because they have to. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness is well aware all of these types in daily Malverne chiropractic practice! No problem! Malverne Health & Wellness designs fitting approaches for all these types to engage with exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Malverne Health & Wellness! We’ve seen it before. If we can get a Malverne back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! Malverne Health & Wellness knows that if a Malverne back pain patient does not like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Malverne Health & Wellness knows that if a Malverne back pain patient misses being able to push his grandchild on the swing, he’ll exercise enough to get him back to being able to swing the grandkids. Yes?! So what motivates you? Malverne Health & Wellness will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
