Groton Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Regular Exercise

Independence. It is an admirable quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, seeking some guidance more often is better. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is prepared to be your guide! Groton back pain sufferers can rely on Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office to establish, demonstrate and supervise a pain-relieving exercise routine specially for you!


Research shows that supervised exercise therapy produces significant symptom relief and bettered quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting 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 helpful alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Groton back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more in such a way!


A newer report states that supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided 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 – two times a week and one time a week - to home exercise. It states specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients brought about significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Groton back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, without a doubt!


Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only gets you so far when your back is hurting. There is always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is planned. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Regarding 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.
