Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move.
Pain sufferers benefit when they do
something. No exercising is a risk for worsening
pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression.
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider takes care of many Ottawa back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider
also knows that when our Ottawa
chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and
NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It’s
the lessening of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A recent study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also discovered to a risk factor for the progression
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability status better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Note though that exercise did help, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well describe themselves as
a little blue when their back pain hangs around a while. It’s not uncommon. Once more,
exercise to the rescue! Another study reported that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Ottawa back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
