Motivations Role in La Grande Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each La Grande back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for La Grande back pain relief. Your La Grande chiropractor knows this well. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC helps each La Grande back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – face the fact that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly keep at bay future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your La Grande back pain specialist, your La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper reveals that communication develops exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your La Grande chiropractic back pain specialist at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC will work hard on communicating with our La Grande chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some La Grande back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s desire to engage with exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who perform the prescribed exercise only because they have to. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC spots all of these types in day-to-day La Grande chiropractic practice! No worry! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC crafts appropriate approaches for all these types to take part in exercise in a healthy way.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC! We’ve witnessed it before. If we can get a La Grande back pain patient doing what she wants to do gets her motivated! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows that if a La Grande back pain patient doesn’t like doing squats, she won’t do them. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC recognizes that if a La Grande back pain patient misses being able to push his grandchild on the swing, he’ll exercise enough to get him back to swinging the grandkids. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC will listen to you and work with you to find your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a significant difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
