Low back pain patients who remain active are better off than those who are less active!
Researchers evaluated how patients recovered from low back pain in relation to their activity levels. Some patients were advised to “stay active” despite the pain, while others were told to adjust their activity levels based on their pain.Those who remained active ended up recovering more quickly and feeling less depressed. On the other hand, patients who adjusted their activity levels felt more depressed and were less mobile.
Researchers suggest that patients who suffer from back pain remain active and continue their daily activities when possible. This will help promote a positive outlook, increase your physical mobility, and put you on the path towards recovery. Consult with a doctor of chiropractic in your area, to learn more about how you can stay active even with back pain.
