Toronto Chiropractic Exercise Recommendation Benefits for Sleep and Back Pain

Exercise. Toronto back pain sufferers hear the recommendation to exercise often. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recommends it, also. Exercise keeps showing its benefit for relief of low back pain and its prevention…plus a new report shows benefit for better sleep quality!


Low back pain is a problem for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers investigate suggested long-term ways to reduce this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise leads the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations along with manual therapy and massage. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers itself as the Toronto back pain specialty clinic that many back pain sufferers visit.


Countless chronic back pain sufferers take themselves to their primary care practitioners first. it is a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care typically involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which denotes the number of patients with a certain condition who need to go through the treatment recommendation for 1 of the treatment recipients to get benefit. In this new study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these 3 options, exercise was the only intervention that demonstrated sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later. (2) Exercise is a valued, self-management, non-drug alternative for chronic low back pain patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre always includes it in the Toronto chiropractic treatment plan. Exercise puts some control of chronic low back pain in our Toronto chiropractic patients’ hands.


Another advantageous patient-controlled option is sleep-and-exercise. Lack of sleep – time and/or quality – is an issue for so many Toronto chiropractic patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre often hears our patients bring up sleep difficulties. Sleep is renewing for the body and the mind. Exercise is often prescribed to address sleep and mood issues. An interesting study about the relationship between sleep and exercise highlights some interesting findings in young women and men. Each is different! Men who exercised more often reported falling asleep faster, less daytime issues, and less depressive mood. Women who exercised more frequently went to bed early, experienced better sleep quality, and reported more benefit from sleep, less depressive mood, and less anger. (3) Regular exercise is key for so many concerns!
