Sandy Springs Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is an admirable quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking some guidance more often is better. Cross Chiropractic Center is ready to be your guide! Sandy Springs back pain sufferers can count on Cross Chiropractic Center to assemble, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it’s not used enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Sandy Springs back pain patients may benefit just like these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A recent study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients delivered significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and one time weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Sandy Springs back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There is always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be dealt with any longer! Then a trip to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Regarding exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Sandy Springs chiropractor is an experienced Sandy Springs back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
