Exercise Improves Sleep and Auburn Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Auburn chiropractic patients come to understand that acting on this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Auburn chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What is known about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Auburn back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep stops these patients from being physically active. (2) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than optimal ability. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. desires all Auburn chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Auburn back pain and do what they can for Auburn back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Auburn back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Auburn back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be very useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Auburn back pain specialist, your Auburn chiropractor takes a look at the whole Auburn back pain patient and examines any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy individualized for each Auburn back pain sufferer.
