Latest News in Gentle West Palm Beach Exercise for Chronic Low Back Pain Relief

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) slows life down for its sufferers. West Palm Beach chronic low back pain sufferers look forward to getting their lives back. Chiropractic Care offers a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often incorporates chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic together with gentle exercise and nutrition. A couple new insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our West Palm Beach back pain patients’ consideration as it’s up to you to choose what exercise works for you!


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 slightly superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more effective to reduce pain and improve activity in the short term. Combining both walking and yoga was proposed as a beneficial combination for chronic low back pain patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga was reported to decrease 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 the same effects on pain and disability as other exercise types or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some like physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they want. Chiropractic Care understands that not every exercise option may be our West Palm Beach back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are essential to participation...and Chiropractic Care has them!


One set of researchers wrote that current evidence does not indicate that any one form of exercise is superior to any other for back pain relief. That is interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for chronic low back pain, a major health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common form of exercise for back pain relief was described as being motor control exercise which works on the deep muscles and their coordination. Reportedly not superior to other types of exercise, motor control exercise should be an alternative for chronic low back pain patients among other types of exercise. The researchers suggested that the choice should be made by the patient in collaboration with his/her doctor/therapist. (3) Chiropractic Care talks with each West Palm Beach back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That’s the most important factor!
