What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing to you? We all like choices! We all have preferences. Your Ottawa chiropractor is up for offering you options when it comes to exercise.  The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider just wants you to exercise. You choose how! When you get to pick, the results are better with regards to satisfaction and pain relief. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider's chiropractic care is all about you and your Ottawa back pain relief.


Adding spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain enhances their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this come from having a professional check on you and your healing occasionally? If you are performing home exercise all by yourself, you do not benefit from someone caring for you, checking on your progress objectively, confirming that you are healing. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is here for our Ottawa chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision and objective encouragement. Chronic low back pain is hard to deal with. It often holds you back from doing what you want to do. It tends to also diminish your quality and enjoyment of life.


The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider wishes our Ottawa back pain patients to perform what they desire and enjoy what they do. Exercise helps. Performing a type of exercise that a back pain patient likes increases the possibility that he or she will exercise. What do you like to do? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – assessed the usefulness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study proposes that either will reduce pain and increase balance and function and that Pilates may be more useful as its exercises aim at the trunk stabilization muscles. Both ways, having a patient choose an exercise program is the goal to enhance patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
