Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch.
Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC takes care of many La Grande back pain
patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
also knows that when our La Grande
chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and
NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the decrease of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who
had spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also found to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis need exercise! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced
their functional disability status more with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise did help, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves
a little down when their back pain sticks around longer
than desired. It’s not uncommon. Again,
exercise helps! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending
exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our La Grande back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
