Exercise Improves Sleep and Nashua Back Pain

July 31, 2018

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Nashua chiropractic patients come to realize that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Nashua chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s known about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Nashua back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than ideal capability. Moriarty Chiropractic wants all Nashua chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Nashua back pain and do what they can for Nashua back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Nashua back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Nashua back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that better sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Nashua back pain specialist, your Nashua chiropractor considers the whole Nashua back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each Nashua back pain sufferer.
