Independence. It’s a worthy
quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking
some guidance more often is better. Moses Chiropractic is prepared
to be your guide! West Palm Beach back pain sufferers can rely
on Moses Chiropractic to assemble, demonstrate and supervise
an exercise routine that is pain relieving
specially for you!
BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing
maximal walking distance in just 3 months. Sadly, it’s not put in to practice enough.
Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other valuable alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence.
(1) West Palm Beach back pain patients may benefit in the same manner these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would value
walking more in such a way!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A newer study reports that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave
significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, walking distance,
pain, physical activity and function compared with
unsupervised. (2) A follow-up study evaluated a more specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week
and one time a week - to home exercise. It states
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy two times a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than
once a week PT visits and home exercise alone.

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only takes you so far when dealing
with back pain. There is always a
tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with
any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is planned.
Many articles are written about how the doctor seen first often sets the course for subsequent
care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid
prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy visits. (4) Moses Chiropractic is honored to be chosen for back pain relief. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is
