Georgetown Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

January 21, 2020

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is unique. Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all help. There’s something for everyone! Dr. Butwell works to inspire our Georgetown back pain patients to exercise and keep their back pain in check.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise. All the participants shared that exercise bettered their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They needed to keep exercising. The most common issues for not continuing these activities were additional health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had little to no effect. The community group exercise provided social support and participants continued these classes after the study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) Dr. Butwell wants to listen, inspire, and watch our Georgetown back pain patients get Georgetown back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.


Another study found that six weeks of two-times-a-week (better than one time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought about significant temporary improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It comes back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of disc herniation with sciatica patients responded to active, energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That is what it’s all about at Dr. Butwell! Active, energetic management of back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Georgetown chiropractor must everything possible to take care of the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology. Dr. Butwell is ready and able to do just that to help our Georgetown back pain patients! Exercise, spinal manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
