No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Ottawa Pain & Disease Progression

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 mind.

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.
