Independence. It is an admirable

on Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center to set up, demonstrate and supervise

BENEFIT OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE
Research demonstrates that supervised exercise
therapy allows significant symptom relief and bettered
quality of life for patients with intermittent claudication by boosting
maximal walking distance in just three months. Sadly, it
is not put in to practice enough.
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 preferred independence.
(1) Paramus back pain patients may benefit in the same way these back
pain sufferers do. Spinal stenosis back pain patients would appreciate
walking more in such a way!
MORE REGULAR SUPERVISED SESSIONS BENEFICIAL
A recent study reports that
supervised physical therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis patients gave
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 specialized
schedule of supervised physical therapy visits – twice a week
and one time a week - to home exercise. It states
specifically that 6 weeks of supervised physical therapy twice a
week for lumbar spinal stenosis patients allowed
significant short term improvements in the severity of symptoms, physical
function, back and leg pain and gait disturbance compared with
once a week PT visits and home exercise exclusively.

EXERCISE AS PART OF AN OVERALL BACK PAIN RELIEF TREATMENT
Improvement is the goal in managing back pain. Independence only takes you so far when dealing
with back pain. There’s always a
tipping point when the pain just cannot be put up with
any longer! Then a visit to the doctor is arranged.
Many articles are written about the choice of healthcare provider a back pain
sufferer sees first sets the course for subsequent
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 very common in the year before elective
lumbar spine surgery: 84.4% opioid prescription and 14.6% minimum of 6 exercise
therapy visits. (4) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is honored to partner with
