help. There’s something for everyone! Spine & Sports Rehab Center hopes
to inspire our Baton Rouge back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the participants shared that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They had to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Baton Rouge back pain patients get Baton Rouge back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients improved with active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Spine & Sports Rehab Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Baton Rouge
chiropractor must go all-in to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Spine & Sports Rehab Center is ready and willing to do just that to bring
relief to our Baton Rouge back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
