Exercise Improves Sleep and Sandy Springs Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Sandy Springs chiropractic patients come to know that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Sandy Springs back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is associated with 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 attempts the next day with less than ideal capability. Cross Chiropractic Center desires all Sandy Springs chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Sandy Springs back pain and do what they can for Sandy Springs back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Sandy Springs back pain sufferers to help them find Sandy Springs back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be quite useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review 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 from 1 to 91 years old discovered that improved sleep quality is linked to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep though they used more time lying down. (3) As your Sandy Springs back pain specialist, your Sandy Springs chiropractor takes a look at the whole Sandy Springs back pain patient and examines any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan personalized for each Sandy Springs back pain sufferer.
