Exercise Improves Sleep and Easley Back Pain

July 31, 2018

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What ties them together? Exercise! Easley chiropractic patients come to realize that acting on this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Easley chiropractic treatment plan pays off in many ways.


What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It’s known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Easley back pain can be depressing if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without help as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers wondered if poor sleep prevents these patients from being physically active. (2) Good question! Other researchers then related that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep permits the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer undertakes the next day with less than ideal ability. Young Chiropractic desires all Easley chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Easley back pain and do what they can for Easley back pain relief.


Exercise is widely recommended to Easley back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Easley back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very useful in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old found that improved sleep quality is tied to habitual physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep though they spent more time lying down. (3) As your Easley back pain specialist, your Easley chiropractor considers the whole Easley back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan individualized for each Easley back pain sufferer.
