Murfreesboro Chronic Low Back Pain Related to Physical Activity Level

Is physical activity really important? Back pain sufferers wonder, especially those who try to avoid physical activity! May  Murfreesboro back pain sufferers are not physical activity ‘junkies’ by nature. (Are you?) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor knows all sorts of back pain sufferers and knows a variety of physical activity options that may be more interesting. At Most Chiropractic Clinic we try to pair the exercise routine to the chronic back pain patient and symptomatology to optimize the results of exercise described in research studies to be valuable in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.

3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?

What you do in your non-work hours makes a difference! Let us first describe sedentary versus physically active. Researchers in one study described physically active folks as those who were more active in their leisure time. They spent 3 hours of their leisure time per day being physically active. Sedentary folks spent 3 hours or more a day of their leisure time sitting. Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain contrasted with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk with a friend, and talk!


We’re all different! When it comes to back pain, the difference shines even more in some aspects. Most Chiropractic Clinic knows some chronic low back pain patients are more prone to exercising and being physically active than others who are more sedentary. What is the difference in these folks? Researchers found a couple things: more physically active folks (those who do at least 150 minutes of moderate or 75 mins. of vigorous physical activity a week) have a lower body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary folks (those who spend more than 8 hours of time in sedentary activities a day) are more likely to have low levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics need to be considered when taking care of back pain patients and encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How can Most Chiropractic Clinic assist our more sedentary back pain sufferers? Hopefully sharing these little bits of information is beneficial! Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is here for you. Let us know your ideas on how we can help you!


In a Cochrane Review done by a high level scientific and well respected research group, exercise for chronic low back pain was shown again as promisingly relieving. The review consisted of 249 papers and their outcomes. Pain relief and functional limitation improvement were noted. (3) Exercise repeatedly shows itself to be beneficial for dealing with chronic low back pain.
