BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
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!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
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
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
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. Your La Grande chiropractor is
