“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some wit in that response,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you have Baton Rouge neck
pain or Baton Rouge back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is ready 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, particularly in terms of pain
intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy revealed
that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a
more assorted 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 effective in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise does not stand out to be better
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial
to decrease pain by boosting the overall
body condition. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps Baton Rouge back pain patients set
up an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance these clinical outcomes.
A new report states that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Baton Rouge chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the best
suited exercise practice to complement your
Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
