“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that answer,
but there is some truth in it, too.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you experience Millville neck
pain or Millville back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Wilson Family 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 doing daily activities in
chronic low back pain patients. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that
motor control exercise is more effective in reducing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise doesn’t 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 advantageous
to decrease pain by boosting the overall
body condition. Wilson Family Chiropractic helps Millville back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Wilson Family Chiropractic also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Wilson Family Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance these clinical outcomes.
A recent report says that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise alone for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Millville chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the right exercise routine to complement your
Millville chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
