What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing
to you? We all like choices! We all have preferences.
Your West Des Moines chiropractor is up for offering
you options when it involves exercise. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa just hopes you
exercise. You choose how! When you choose,
the outcomes are better in terms of
satisfaction and pain relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa's chiropractic care is all about you and your West Des Moines back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR SATISFACTION
Adding spinal manipulation and/or supervised
rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with
chronic low back pain improves their satisfaction with
care. (1) Could this result from having a professional check on you and
your healing periodically? If you are performing
home exercise all by yourself, you do not get
the benefit of someone being concerned about you,
checking on your progress objectively, letting you know you
are healing. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is here for our West Des Moines
chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision
and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is tough
to deal with. It often limits what you can do. It tends to also diminish
your quality and enjoyment of life.
DO WHAT YOU WANT
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa wishes our West Des Moines
back pain patients to do what they want and enjoy
what they do. Exercise is essential. Doing a type
of exercise that a back pain patient enjoys raises
the possibility that he or she will exercise. What do
you like to do? A recent study of older adults – 65
to 85 years – compared the usefulness of
Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The
study suggests that either will decrease pain and increase
balance and function and that Pilates may be more useful
since its exercises are directed at the trunk
stabilization muscles. Either way, having a patient choose an
exercise program is the
goal to enhance patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and
quality of life. (2)
