What’s recognized about the sleep and pain connection? It’s acknowledged that sleep disturbance and depression affect the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing East Setauket back pain can be depressing if it continues for too long (more than 12 weeks) without respite as is the case in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep stops these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression.

Exercise is commonly suggested to East Setauket back pain sufferers in aiding their path to East Setauket back pain relief. Stabilization exercise is reported to be quite useful 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 performed stabilization exercise for just 8 weeks straight, everything improved: sleep quality, disability, depression level, and anxiety level. (1) Another study of 1645 people from 1 to 91 years old discovered that improved sleep quality is linked to habitual physical activity. This study also learned 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 East Setauket back pain specialist, your East Setauket chiropractor takes a look at the whole East Setauket back pain patient and studies any and all factors when recommending an exercise strategy individualized for each East Setauket back pain sufferer.
