“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but it is true, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you suffer with St. Francisville neck
pain or St. Francisville back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here to help you figure out what
exercise you will do and exercise that will help you.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING EXERCISE HELPS
General strength and conditioning exercise benefits
chronic low back pain patients, especially in terms of pain
intensity relief. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy made known
that the general exercise tended to provide a
more diverse range of treatment effects.
In particular, the general exercise improved
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of movement in
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that
motor control exercise is more successful in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise doesn’t stand out to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is useful
to decrease pain by boosting the overall
body condition. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville helps St. Francisville back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to get
the most in pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to boost these clinical outcomes.
A new report says that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your St. Francisville chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the right exercise routine to complement your
St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
