Independence. It is an admirable
quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting
some guidance more often is better. Malverne Health & Wellness is ready
to be your guide! Malverne back pain sufferers can depend
on Malverne Health & Wellness to establish, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing
maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it’s 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) Malverne 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 newer study reports that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave
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 one time weekly - 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 rather than
one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone.
(3) Our Malverne back pain patients would embrace all these
improvements, no doubt!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal for back
pain management. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a
tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with
any more! Then a trip to the doctor is arranged.
Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain
sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Regarding
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) Malverne Health & Wellness is honored to partner with
