Pflugerville Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Benefits from Routine Exercise

Independence. It’s an admirable quality. Most of the time. When it comes to exercise, accepting a little guidance more often is better. Pflugerville Wellness Center is equipped to be your guide! Pflugerville back pain sufferers can depend on Pflugerville Wellness Center to establish, demonstrate and supervise an exercise routine that is pain relieving specially for you!


Research demonstrates that supervised exercise therapy allows significant symptom relief and improved quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it is underutilized. Home based exercise therapy with observation tools like a pedometer or logbook and walking are other beneficial alternatives to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the preferred independence. (1) Pflugerville back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate walking more like that!


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 specialized schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week and one time weekly - to home exercise. It reports specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance rather than once a week PT visits and home exercise alone. (3) Our Pflugerville back pain patients would welcome all these improvements, undoubtedly!


Improvement is the goal for back pain management. Independence only takes you so far when dealing with back pain. There’s always a tipping point when the pain just can’t be put up with any more! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged. Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent care. (That was the subject of another blog!) Concerning exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative management forms that are often too infrequently used while opioid prescriptions are very common in the year before elective lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise therapy sessions. (4) Pflugerville Wellness Center is honored to partner with you for back pain relief.
