“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you experience Burlington and Hamilton neck
pain or Burlington and Hamilton back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Spinal Care Clinic is ready to help you find
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, particularly in terms of pain
intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy made known
that the general exercise was more apt to provide a
more varied range of treatment outcomes.
Specifically, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of movement for
chronic low back pain patients. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more effective in reducing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise doesn’t show itself to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is helpful
to decrease pain by boosting the overall
body condition. Spinal Care Clinic helps Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients set
up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Spinal Care Clinic also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Spinal Care Clinic uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A new report states that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
