August 27, 2019

“I’m 60/65/70/75/80 years old. Do I have to keep exercising?” You sure do! The old saying of “move it or lose it” applies! Exercise is an integral part of the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers. And we know our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ commitment to exercise comes and goes. We get it and keep fostering our patients’ commitment to keep exercising. We are confident that once you realize how amazing you feel with exercise as part of your daily life, you will keep doing it!


For post-menopausal women it is even more important to keep exercising. In the latest|a new study of post-menopausal women with vertebral fractures, spinal pain, back extensor muscle strength, trunk-arm endurance, kyphosis, functional mobility, and quality of life all recover with exercise, specifically a supervised exercise program over a home-based one. (1) Would you agree with Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers that if someone is supervising your exercise, you’ll be more likely to exercise and more likely to do it right? We all need a little extra prompting to do what we should sometimes. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers does that for our Baton Rouge back pain patients!


Regardless of their age, Baton Rouge back pain patients benefit from exercise. Reviewers of the exercise-for-back-pain-relief medical literature give in to the published evidence and suggest that patients perform exercises they like and can do simply. Research’s best-evidence on rehabilitation for chronic low back pain asserts that spinal manipulation and pain neuroscience education missed with exercise with or without psychological therapy is best. Adding the psychological part to exercise seems to produce better outcomes that are more long-term. (2) It’s never a bad idea|It never hurts to reach out for help with the emotional aspect of back pain and neck pain. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers values the opportunity to direct back pain patients to get the care they need.
