Motivations Role in Ottawa Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an unusual motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Ottawa back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Ottawa back pain relief. Your Ottawa chiropractor knows this well. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider helps each Ottawa back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – come to terms with exercise that will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Ottawa back pain specialist, your Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider finds the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper presents that communication develops exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more effectively than men. (1) So your Ottawa chiropractic back pain specialist at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider will put much effort into communicating with our Ottawa chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Ottawa back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who do the recommended exercise only because they have to. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider appreciates all of these types in daily Ottawa chiropractic practice! No concern! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider comes up with appropriate approaches for all these types to engage with healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to get a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider! We’ve witnessed it before. If we can get a Ottawa back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated!
