Carrolltown Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”

“The kind that you’ll do!”

There is some humor in that delivery, but it’s true, also. Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Carrolltown neck pain or Carrolltown back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is here to help you figure out what 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 tended to provide a more assorted range of treatment results. In particular, the general exercise improved trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of moving for chronic low back pain patients. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more efficient in reducing 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 advantageous for pain reduction by boosting the overall body condition. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps Carrolltown back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.


Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation also works to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise with chiropractic treatment. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes. A new report states 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 Carrolltown chiropractor and you will figure out the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
