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!
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 boosting
maximal walking distance in just three months. Sadly, it’s 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!
MORE FREQUENT SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
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 welcome all these
improvements, without a doubt!
EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
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
