Motivations Role in Easley Exercise for Back Pain Relief

July 18, 2017

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each Easley back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for Easley back pain relief. Your Easley chiropractor knows this well. Young Chiropractic helps each Easley back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – accept that exercise will relieve and even control and possibly fend off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your Easley back pain specialist, your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic learns the best way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and relieve its pain with exercise. One new research paper reveals that communication increases exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your Easley chiropractic back pain specialist at Young Chiropractic will work hard on communicating with our Easley chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Young Chiropractic promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some Easley back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What is yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Interestingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the prescribed exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Young Chiropractic appreciates all of these types in day-to-day Easley chiropractic practice! No worry! Young Chiropractic crafts appropriate approaches for all these types to participate in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Young Chiropractic! We have seen it before. If we can get a Easley back pain patient doing what she wants to do gets her motivated! Young Chiropractic knows that if a Easley back pain patient does not like to lift weights, he won’t lift weights. Young Chiropractic recognizes that if a Easley back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she’ll walk. Yes?! So what motivates you? Young Chiropractic will listen to you and work with you to discover your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a big difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start? Young Chiropractic is here for you!
