Disc Centers Of America sees many Buffalo, NY back pain
patients in pain who also deal with depression. Disc Centers Of America

NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION
Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s
the reduction of the spinal canal area as a result of degeneration. A new study reported
that risk of spinal stenosis progression is greater for those with spondylolisthesis, had pain (in leg and/or back) when
walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise
was also found to a risk factor for the advancement
of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal
stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Disc Centers Of America helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.
EXERCISE IMPROVES FUNCTION
Nonspecific low back pain sufferers improved
their functional disability status better with
stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise
programs. (2) Notice though that exercise helped, conventional or not!
EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION
For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific
back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves
a little sad when their back pain sticks around a while. It is not unusual. Again,
exercise helps! Another study showed that exercise
(low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped decrease
depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining
exercise and manual therapy was a plus! (3) Disc Centers Of America brings
in as many positive approaches to back pain relief as
possible to help our Buffalo, NY back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System
of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
