Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Pensacola back pain sufferers especially for Pensacola post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable decrease in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal a week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows our Pensacola chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Pensacola treatment plan of chiropractic care.
