BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy begets significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by increasing
maximal walking distance in just 90 days. Sadly, it
Home based exercise therapy with observation devices like a
pedometer or logbook and walking are other helpful alternatives
to supervised exercise, allowing a bit more of the desired independence.
(1) Buffalo, NY 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!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A newer study reports 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 specific
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – two times a week
and once weekly - to home exercise. It states
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice weekly for lumbar spinal stenosis patients provided
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 Buffalo, NY back pain patients would embrace all these
improvements, without a doubt!

Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain
sufferer sees first sets the course for resulting
care. (That was the topic of another blog!) Regarding
exercise and physical therapy for back pain, though, these are conservative
management forms that are often too rarely used while opioid
prescriptions are most ordinarly in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy sessions. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center is honored to partner with
