What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s different.
Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There’s something for everyone! Cross Chiropractic Center works
to inspire our Sandy Springs back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients reported that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They had to keep doing them. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were additional
health issues 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 so
important. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Sandy Springs back pain patients get Sandy Springs back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study found that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (better than once 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 explained that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it is all about at Cross Chiropractic Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Sandy Springs
chiropractor must go all out to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Cross Chiropractic Center is ready and willing to do just that to bring
relief to our Sandy Springs back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
