What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

July 02, 2019

What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing to you? We all like choices! We all have preferences. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is up for offering you options when it comes to exercise.  Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers just hopes you exercise. You choose how! When you choose, the outcomes are better in terms of satisfaction and pain relief. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers's chiropractic care is all about you and your Baton Rouge back pain relief.


Including spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain improves their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this result from having a professional check on you and your healing periodically? If you are doing home exercise alone, you do not get the benefit of someone being concerned about you, checking on your progress objectively, confirming that you are improving. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is here for our Baton Rouge chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is hard to deal with. It often holds you back from doing what you want to do. It tends to also diminish your quality and enjoyment of life.


Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers wants our Baton Rouge back pain patients to perform what they desire and like what they do. Exercise helps. Doing a form of exercise that a back pain patient prefers increases the possibility that he or she will exercise. What do you like to do? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – compared the usefulness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study proposes that either will reduce pain and increase balance and function and that Pilates may be more helpful since its exercises target the trunk stabilization muscles. Either way, matching patient preference to an exercise program is the goal to boost patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
