“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that answer,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you experience West Palm Beach neck
pain or West Palm Beach back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Chiropractic Care is here to help you find
exercise you will do and exercise that will help you.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING EXERCISE HELPS
General strength and conditioning exercise helps
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 tended to provide a
more diverse range of treatment outcomes.
In particular, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of movement for
chronic low back pain patients. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more efficient in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise doesn’t 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 improving the overall
body condition. Chiropractic Care helps West Palm Beach back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Chiropractic Care also aims to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic Care uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enrich such clinical outcomes.
A recent report states that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your West Palm Beach chiropractor and you will
determine the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your
West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
