keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying
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 personalized exercise.
All the participants stated that exercise bettered
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They needed to keep doing them. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were additional
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our La Grande back pain patients get La Grande back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the benchmark paper by Weber who explained that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain improved with active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it is all about at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your La Grande
chiropractor must go all out to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
