Exercise Improves Sleep and Pflugerville Back Pain

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


What is recognized about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s state of mind. Having Pflugerville back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Great question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and rejuventate for the next day’s tasks. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer tackles the next day with less than ideal capability. Pflugerville Wellness Center wants all Pflugerville chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Pflugerville back pain and do what they can for Pflugerville back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Pflugerville back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Pflugerville back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite useful in managing 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 in a row, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that better sleep quality is tied to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Pflugerville back pain specialist, your Pflugerville chiropractor takes a look at the whole Pflugerville back pain patient and examines any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each Pflugerville back pain sufferer.
