Burlington and Hamilton Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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.


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.


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!
