“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.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING EXERCISE HELPS
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.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
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!
