OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients shared that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common issues
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants kept going to 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 of great importance to them. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Baton Rouge back pain patients get Baton Rouge back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
Another study reported that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than one
time 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 harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Baton Rouge
