Baton Rouge Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

January 21, 2020

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is different. Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all help. There’s something for everyone! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers hopes to inspire our Baton Rouge back pain patients to exercise to keep their back pain in check.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise. All the participants stated that exercise improved their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They had to keep exercising. The most common issues for not continuing these activities were other health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little to no effect. The community group exercise provided social support and participants continued these classes after the study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were so important. (1) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers wants to listen, inspire, and see our Baton Rouge back pain patients get Baton Rouge back pain relief with chiropractic care and 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 benchmark paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active, energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what it is all about at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers! Active, energetic management of back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Baton Rouge chiropractor must everything possible to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is ready and willing to do just that to help our Baton Rouge back pain patients!
