No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More West Des Moines Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Walk. Stretch. Move. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. No exercising is a risk for deteriorating pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa takes care of many West Des Moines back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa also recognizes that when our West Des Moines chiropractic patients do something, they get better in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It is the reduction of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A new study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The lack 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 need exercise! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 level better with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice 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 blue when their back pain hangs around longer than desired. It’s not unusual. Once more, exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Blending exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our West Des Moines back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
