Auburn Chiropractic Exercise Recommendation Benefits for Sleep and Back Pain

Exercise. Auburn back pain sufferers hear the recommendation to exercise often. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. recommends it, too. Exercise keeps showing its benefit for low back pain relief and prevention…plus a new report shows benefit for improved sleep quality!


Low back pain is a problem for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers examine proposed long-term methods to decrease this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise leads the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations with manual therapy and massage in that list as well. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is the Auburn back pain specialty clinic that many back pain sufferers visit.


Countless chronic back pain sufferers take themselves to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty normal experience. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care usually involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is an interesting statistic called “number to treat” which denotes the number of patients with a certain condition who need to go through the treatment recommendation for 1 of the treatment recipients to get benefit. In this recent study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these 3 options, exercise was the only intervention that demonstrated sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a valued, self-management, non-drug option for chronic low back pain patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. always incorporates it in the Auburn chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise places some control of chronic low back pain in our Auburn chiropractic patients’ hands.


Another advantageous patient-controlled option is sleep-and-exercise. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many Auburn chiropractic patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. often hears our patients discuss sleep difficulties. Sleep is rejuvenating for the body and the mind. Exercise is often prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. An interesting study about the relationship between sleep and exercise highlights some interesting findings in young women and men. Each is different! Men who exercised more frequently reported falling asleep quicker, less daytime issues, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more frequently went to bed early, had better sleep quality, and reported more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is important for so many concerns!
