Exercise Improves Sleep and Baton Rouge Back Pain

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


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Baton Rouge back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer takes on the next day with less than optimal ability. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation wants all Baton Rouge chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Baton Rouge back pain and do what they can for Baton Rouge back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Baton Rouge back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Baton Rouge back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 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 found that better sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Baton Rouge back pain specialist, your Baton Rouge chiropractor considers the whole Baton Rouge back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise plan personalized for each Baton Rouge back pain sufferer.
