Baton Rouge Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is a worthy quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking a bit of guidance more often is better. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is prepared to be your guide! Baton Rouge back pain sufferers can rely on Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation to establish, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just three months. Sadly, it’s not put in to practice enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Baton Rouge back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more in such a way!


A newer study reports that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance, pain, physical activity and function in comparison to unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and once a week - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively. (3) Our Baton Rouge back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, without a doubt!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only takes you so far when your back is hurting. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for resulting care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Concerning 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 visits. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is honored to be chosen for back pain relief.
