Baton Rouge Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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.


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.


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!
