Minster 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 wit in that delivery, but there is some truth in it, too. Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Minster neck pain or Minster back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Minster Chiropractic Center is here to help you figure out what exercise you will do and exercise that will benefit you.


General strength and conditioning exercise benefits chronic low back pain patients, especially in terms of pain intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise to motor control exercise with manual therapy revealed that the general exercise tended to deliver a more diverse range of treatment results. Specifically, the general exercise improved trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of moving for patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more successful in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor control exercise does not show itself to be healthier than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is useful for pain reduction by boosting the overall body condition. Minster Chiropractic Center helps Minster back pain patients set up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.


Minster Chiropractic Center also works to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise with chiropractic treatment. Minster Chiropractic Center uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes. A new report states that combining manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Minster chiropractor and you will determine the best suited exercises and the right exercise routine to complement your Minster chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
