Severna Park Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It’s an admirable quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking a little guidance more often is better. Back And Neck Care Center is ready to be your guide! Severna Park back pain sufferers can count on Back And Neck Care Center to assemble, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine just for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy begets significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it’s underutilized. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Severna Park back pain patients may benefit in the same manner 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 compared with unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study compared a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It states specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times weekly 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 compared with one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Severna Park back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, no doubt!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when dealing with back pain. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any more! Then a trip 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 subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently 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) Back And Neck Care Center is honored to be chosen for back pain relief.
