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!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
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 90 days. 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!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
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 compared 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!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
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 more! 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. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is
