“It’s my favorite [exercise]”

A patient’s comment from last week: this isn’t about what exercise is their “favorite”.

It’s about why any exercise would be a patient’s favorite. (Note: the context is exercises given by us to patient’s, and I have talked about the thinking there here and, in particular, the “why” of the first 5 or 6 exercises we usually recommend to patients.)

Anyway, patients who do the recommended exercises discover two things: the exercises help patients hold their adjustments – which means they help with managing pain (usually) – which means that they can go longer between visits and remain comfortable.

Exercises are not convenient. They take time. But they do produce results if chosen carefully, done correctly, and done for a long enough time (spine exercises are forever!)

Something to think about.
