Motivations Role in West Des Moines 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 West Des Moines back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for West Des Moines back pain relief. Your West Des Moines chiropractor knows this well. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps each West Des Moines 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 fend off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your West Des Moines back pain specialist, your West Des Moines chiropractor at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper reveals that communication improves exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your West Des Moines chiropractic back pain specialist at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa will work hard on communicating with our West Des Moines chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some West Des Moines 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 engage with 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 oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who do the recommended exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is well aware all of these types in day-to-day West Des Moines chiropractic practice! No worry! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa designs fitting approaches for all these types to participate in healing and relieving exercise.
