EXERCISE FOR RELIEF OF THE BURDEN OF LOW BACK PAIN
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 to
which many back pain sufferers go.
BACK PAIN SPECIALIST’S PLAN FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF ADDS EXERCISE
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
WHAT ABOUT SLEEP AND EXERCISE?
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!
