A couple recent insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our Baton Rouge back pain patients’ consideration as it is for you to decide to choose what exercise suits you!

WALKING AND MIND-BODY THERAPIES: Gentle Exercise Options

Walking works, so do mind-body therapies like yoga. An analysis of 31 randomized control trials of 3193 participants, walking came across as effective as control interventions for short term relief of chronic low back pain and somewhat superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more effective for pain and activity limitation improvement in the short term. Doing both yoga and walking was suggested to be a beneficial combination for chronic low back pain patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga reportedly decreased pain in the short to intermediate term and to improve functional disability from short to long term when compared with non-exercise, usual care, and education. However it had equal effects on pain and disability as other exercise types or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can do yoga if they want. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands that not every exercise option may be our Baton Rouge back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are essential to participation...and Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One group of researchers wrote that current evidence doesn’t propose that any single form of exercise is better than any other for back pain relief. That’s interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for CLBP, a substantial health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common form of exercise for back pain relief was reported as motor control exercise working on the deep muscles and their coordination. Reportedly not superior to other forms of exercise, motor control exercise should be an alternative for chronic low back pain patients among other kinds of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be made by the patient in collaboration with his/her doctor/therapist. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation talks with each Baton Rouge back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That is the key!
