Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s

help. There’s something for everyone! Pflugerville Wellness Center works
to inspire our Pflugerville back pain patients to exercise and
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the participants shared that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They needed to keep exercising. The most common reasons
for not continuing these activities were additional
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Pflugerville back pain patients get Pflugerville back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (better than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of disc
herniation with sciatica patients responded to active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Pflugerville Wellness Center! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Pflugerville
chiropractor must go all out to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Pflugerville Wellness Center is ready and willing to do just that to help our Pflugerville back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
