“Doc, what type 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 will do is the most valuable exercise of all! Whether you experience Easley neck pain or Easley back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Young Chiropractic 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, especially 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 deliver a more diverse range of treatment outcomes. Specifically, the general exercise improved trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of moving in patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that motor control exercise is more successful in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor control exercise does not show itself to be healthier than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is useful to decrease pain by improving the overall body condition. Young Chiropractic helps Easley back pain patients set up an exercise practice that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Young Chiropractic also works to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Young Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to boost such clinical outcomes. A new report states that blending manipulative treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Easley chiropractor and you will determine the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your Easley chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
