Exercise Improves Sleep and Peoria Back Pain

Better sleep. Less anxiety. Back Pain Relief. What links them together? Exercise! Peoria chiropractic patients come to understand that following this one little suggestion to exercise – even just walking! – in their Peoria chiropractic treatment plan benefits in many ways.


What’s known about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s state of mind. Experiencing Peoria back pain can be disheartening if it lasts for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case 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) Great question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is related to 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 undertakes the next day with less than optimal ability. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture wants all Peoria chiropractic care patients to be fully ready to deal with their Peoria back pain and do what they can for Peoria back pain relief.


Exercise is widely suggested to Peoria back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Peoria back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is written to be very valuable in managing sleep disturbance, pain-related disability, depression and anxiety for chronic low back pain patients. In a review of 26 chronic back pain patients who did stabilization exercise for only 8 weeks straight, everything got better: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that better sleep quality is linked to routine physical activity. This study also learned that patients over 40 years of age with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes had poorer sleep and yet they used more time lying down. (3) As your Peoria back pain specialist, your Peoria chiropractor takes a look at the whole Peoria back pain patient and examines any and all factors when suggesting an exercise strategy personalized for each Peoria back pain sufferer.
