OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise. All the patients shared that exercise improved their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They needed to keep exercising. The most common reasons for not carrying on with these activities were additional health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight 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 of great importance to them. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and see our Nashua back pain patients get Nashua back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six weeks of twice-a-week (better than one time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought about significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It comes back to the classic 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’s what it’s all about at Moriarty Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of back pain!
