“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable 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.
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 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.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
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!
