Motivation’s Role in New York City Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Pain is an odd motivator. Pain may de-motivate one person (fear of pain, excuse to not do, reason to not exercise). Pain may motivate another person (fear of not doing, desire to do more, increased need to exercise). Back pain affects each New York City back pain sufferer in a different way, too, when it comes to exercise for New York City back pain relief. Your New York City chiropractor knows this well. Innate Wisdom helps each New York City back pain sufferer by starting where he or she is - motivated or not, fearful or not, exercise-craved or not – come to terms with exercise that will relieve and even control and possibly hold off future episodes of back pain.


Often it comes down to communication. As your New York City back pain specialist, your New York City chiropractor at Innate Wisdom finds the most appropriate way to communicate with you about your back pain condition and how to help and combat its pain with exercise. One new research paper shows that communication develops exercise program adherence and clinical outcomes for women more so than men. (1) So your New York City chiropractic back pain specialist at Innate Wisdom will put much effort into communicating with our New York City chiropractic female patients to motivate them to exercise! Innate Wisdom promises!


Back pain and exercise avoidance kind of go together…for some New York City back pain sufferers. You?  There are different exercise motivation profiles. What’s yours? Body concept, pain, disability, level of activity, and the type of exercise a back pain patient does all influence the back pain sufferer’s wanting to exercise. There are highly motivated back pain patients (29.1%), independently-convinced-that-exercise-will-help-them back pain patients (21.7%), controlled convinced patients who know exercise is good for them but do it only because they feel they have to (19.7%) and less motivated back pain sufferers (29.5%). Surprisingly, competitive type athletes with back pain oftentimes will fall into the latter two groups who perform the recommended exercise only because they feel they must. (2) Innate Wisdom is well aware all of these types in daily New York City chiropractic practice! No fear! Innate Wisdom comes up with fitting approaches for all these types to take part in healing and relieving exercise.


Matching lifestyle goals to activities is a good way to encourage a back pain sufferer to exercise. (3) That makes sense to Innate Wisdom! We have witnessed it before. If we can get a New York City back pain patient doing what she wants to do gets her motivated! Innate Wisdom knows that if a New York City back pain patient doesn’t like doing squats, she won’t do them. Innate Wisdom recognizes that if a New York City back pain patient likes to walk her dog, she will walk. Yes?! So what makes you tick? Innate Wisdom will listen to you and work with you to figure out your exercise sweet spot, your exercise plan. It’ll make a significant difference in your back pain level, mood, outlook on life, body’s condition, engagement with life and family and friends. (3) Ready to start? Innate Wisdom is here for you!
