BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research shows that supervised exercise
therapy allows significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing
maximal walking distance in just three months. Sadly, it
is not used 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 desired independence.
(1) Auburn back pain patients may benefit just like
these back pain patients. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more in such a way!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent report states that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function in comparison to
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week
and once a week - to home exercise. It states
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about
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 exclusively.
(3) Our Auburn back pain patients would welcome all these
improvements, no doubt!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets 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 longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Regarding
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid
prescriptions are very common in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy sessions. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your Auburn chiropractor is
