Pensacola Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It’s a worthy quality. Sometimes. When it comes to exercise, accepting a little guidance more often is better. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is ready to be your guide! Pensacola back pain sufferers can rely on Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center to set up, 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 boosting maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it is underutilized. Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence. (1) Pensacola back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


A newer study reports 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 compared a more specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and once weekly - to home exercise. It states specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than one time a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Pensacola back pain patients would embrace all these improvements, without a doubt!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only takes you so far when dealing with back pain. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with any longer! Then a trip to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting care. (That was the subject 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 visits. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is honored to partner with you for back pain relief. Your Pensacola chiropractor is an experienced Pensacola back pain specialist whose treatment plan includes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management and exercise.
