Auburn Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It’s an admirable quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, seeking a bit of guidance more often is better. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is ready to be your guide! Auburn back pain sufferers can count on Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to assemble, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


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 90 days. 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!


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!


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.
