Motivations Role in Sandy Springs Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Sandy Springs back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Sandy Springs back pain relief. Your Sandy Springs chiropractor knows this well. Cross Chiropractic Center helps each Sandy Springs back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – face the fact that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly fend off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Sandy Springs back pain specialist, your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper reveals that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Sandy Springs chiropractic back pain specialist at Cross Chiropractic Center will put much effort into communicating with our Sandy Springs chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Cross Chiropractic Center promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Sandy Springs back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who perform the prescribed exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center is well aware all of these types in daily Sandy Springs chiropractic practice! No fear! Cross Chiropractic Center designs fitting approaches for all these types to take part in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to inspire a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Cross Chiropractic Center! We have seen it before. If we can get a Sandy Springs back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! Cross Chiropractic Center knows that if a Sandy Springs back pain patient doesn’t like doing squats, she will not do them. Cross Chiropractic Center knows that if a Sandy Springs back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she will walk. Sound about right?! So what motivates you? Cross Chiropractic Center will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
