Exercise Improves Sleep and Paramus Back Pain

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


What is known about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Paramus back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all recommend exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then reported that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression. (2) Sleep allows the body to rest and regenerate for the next day’s adventures. Without sleep, the chronic back pain sufferer attempts the next day with less than ideal capability. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center wants all Paramus chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to cope with their Paramus back pain and do what they can for Paramus back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly recommended to Paramus back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Paramus back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be very useful in the management of sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a study of 26 chronic back pain patients who performed stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people aged 1 to 91 years found that improved sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also found that patients over 40 years old with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes experienced poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Paramus back pain specialist, your Paramus chiropractor takes a look at the whole Paramus back pain patient and studies any and all factors when suggesting an exercise plan personalized for each Paramus back pain sufferer.
