No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Nashua Pain & Disease Progression

September 24, 2019

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do something. A lack of exercise is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Moriarty Chiropractic sees many Nashua back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Moriarty Chiropractic also recognizes that when our Nashua chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and mind.


Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s the decrease of the spinal canal area due to degeneration. A recent study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those who had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also discovered to a risk factor for the advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Moriarty Chiropractic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.


Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved their functional disability status better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise helped, conventional or not!


For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as a little blue when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not unusual. Once more, exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Moriarty Chiropractic brings in as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Nashua back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
