La Grande Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It is a worthy quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, getting a little guidance more often is better. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is prepared to be your guide! La Grande back pain sufferers can count on Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC to assemble, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it is not put in to practice enough. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) La Grande back pain patients may benefit just like these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value walking more like that!


A newer report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave 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 specific schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice 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 provided significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our La Grande back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only takes you so far when dealing with back pain. There is always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first 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 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) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is honored to be chosen for back pain relief.
