Exercise Improves Sleep and Groton Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Groton chiropractic patients come to understand that following this one little recommendation to exercise – even just walking! – in their Groton chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Groton back pain can be disheartening if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer tackles the next day with less than ideal capability. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office desires all Groton chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Groton back pain and do what they can for Groton back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Groton back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Groton back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is stated to be very useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that better sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Groton back pain specialist, your Groton chiropractor considers the whole Groton back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan personalized for each Groton back pain sufferer.
