Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Cross Chiropractic Center takes care of many Sandy Springs back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Cross Chiropractic Center
also understands that when our Sandy Springs
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It’s
the reduction of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A recent study revealed
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also found to a risk factor for the advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those with spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Cross Chiropractic Center helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION
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!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as
a little down when their back pain sticks around a while. It is not unusual. Once more,
exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Cross Chiropractic Center incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Sandy Springs back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
