Exercise Improves Sleep and Pensacola Back Pain

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


What is known about the sleep and pain connection? It is acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Having Pensacola back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief 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 prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than ideal ability. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center wants all Pensacola chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Pensacola back pain and do what they can for Pensacola back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Pensacola back pain sufferers to help them find Pensacola back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that improved sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep though they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Pensacola back pain specialist, your Pensacola chiropractor considers the whole Pensacola back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy individualized for each Pensacola back pain sufferer.
