Does exercise really work? Back pain sufferers wonder,
especially those who don’t enjoy physical activity! Some Groton back pain sufferers are not exercisers by
nature. (Are you?) Your Groton chiropractor meets all types
of back pain sufferers and knows all sorts of physical activity
options that may be more interesting. At Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office we try
to match the exercise routine to the chronic back pain sufferer
and symptomatology to optimize the results of
exercise described in research studies to be beneficial
in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.
3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?
How do you spend your non-work hours makes a difference! Let us first define
sedentary versus physically active.
Researchers in one study described physically active folks as
those who were more active in their leisure time. They spent 3
hours of their leisure time a day being physically active. Sedentary
folks spent 3 hours or more per day of their leisure time sitting.
Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain contrasted
with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your
off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk
with a friend, and talk!
ACTIVE AND SEDENTARY BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR ACTIVITY
We are all different! Regarding back pain, the difference comes to light even more in some
aspects. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows some chronic low back
pain patients are more likely to exercise and be physically active than others who tend to be more
sedentary. What is the difference in these folks? Researchers
found a few things: more physically active ones (those
who do at least 150 mins. of moderate or 75 minutes
of vigorous physical activity a week) have a lower
body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary
folks (those who spend more than 8 hours of time in sedentary
activities a day) tend to have low
levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics
need to be considered when treating back pain patients and
encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How
can Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office assist our more sedentary back pain sufferers?
these little bits of information is beneficial! Your Groton
chiropractor is right here with you. Let us know your thoughts
on how we can help you!
