Exercise Improves Sleep and Baton Rouge Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come to understand that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having Baton Rouge back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than optimal capability. Spine & Sports Rehab Center desires all Baton Rouge chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Baton Rouge back pain and do what they can for Baton Rouge back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Baton Rouge back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Baton Rouge back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that better sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Baton Rouge back pain specialist, your Baton Rouge chiropractor takes a look at the whole Baton Rouge back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy personalized for each Baton Rouge back pain sufferer.
