Motivations Role in Baton Rouge Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual 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 Baton Rouge back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Baton Rouge back pain relief. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor knows this well. Spine & Sports Rehab Center helps each Baton Rouge back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – come to terms with exercise that will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Baton Rouge back pain specialist, your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center finds the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Baton Rouge chiropractic back pain specialist at Spine & Sports Rehab Center will put much effort into communicating with our Baton Rouge chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Spine & Sports Rehab Center promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Baton Rouge back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s 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 sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the prescribed exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well aware all of these types in daily Baton Rouge chiropractic practice! No concern! Spine & Sports Rehab Center designs appropriate approaches for all these types to take part in exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Spine & Sports Rehab Center! We have witnessed it before. If we can get a Baton Rouge back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows that if a Baton Rouge back pain patient doesn’t like doing squats, she won’t do them. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows that if a Baton Rouge back pain patient enjoys walking her dog, she’ll walk. Right?! So what motivates you? Spine & Sports Rehab Center will listen to you and work with you to discover your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a significant difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
