Malverne Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

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!


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!


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!


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!) 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) Malverne Health & Wellness is honored to partner with you for back pain relief.
