Motivations Role in Vancouver 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 Vancouver back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Vancouver back pain relief. Your Vancouver chiropractor knows this well. Vancouver Disc Centers helps each Vancouver 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 Vancouver back pain specialist, your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers finds the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper presents that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Vancouver chiropractic back pain specialist at Vancouver Disc Centers will put much effort into communicating with our Vancouver chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Vancouver Disc Centers promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Vancouver back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is 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%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain sometimes fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers appreciates all of these types in day-to-day Vancouver chiropractic practice! No fear! Vancouver Disc Centers designs appropriate approaches for all these types to engage with healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is an effective way to inspire a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Vancouver Disc Centers! We have witnessed it before. If we can get a Vancouver back pain patient to do what he wants to do gets him motivated! Vancouver Disc Centers knows that if a Vancouver back pain patient does not like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Vancouver Disc Centers knows that if a Vancouver back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she’ll walk. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Vancouver Disc Centers will listen to you and work with you to find your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It will make a significant difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start?
