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

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Patients who suffer with pain benefit when they do something. A lack of exercise is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Vancouver Disc Centers sees many Vancouver back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Vancouver Disc Centers also understands that when our Vancouver chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE RAISES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a familiar diagnosis. It is the lessening of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A recent study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who had 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 advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis must exercise! Vancouver Disc Centers helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise is right for them.

EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability status more 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 sad when their back pain hangs around a while. It is not uncommon. Again, exercise to the rescue! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Vancouver Disc Centers brings in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Vancouver back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
