Exercise Improves Sleep and Vancouver Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Vancouver chiropractic patients come to understand that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Vancouver back pain can be disheartening if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than optimal capability. Vancouver Disc Centers wants all Vancouver chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Vancouver back pain and do what they can for Vancouver back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Vancouver back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Vancouver back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks in a row, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years discovered that better sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Vancouver back pain specialist, your Vancouver chiropractor takes a look at the whole Vancouver back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each Vancouver back pain sufferer.
