Latest News in Gentle Millville Exercise for Chronic Low Back Pain Relief

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) negatively impacts life for its sufferers. Millville chronic low back pain sufferers look forward to getting their lives back. Wilson Family Chiropractic follows a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often includes chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic as well as gentle exercise and nutrition. A couple new insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our Millville back pain patients’ consideration as it’s for you to decide to select 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 was found to be 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 valuable combination for CLBP 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 compared to non-exercise, usual care, and education. However it had the same effects on pain and disability as other exercise modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can walk. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they want. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows not every exercise option may be our Millville back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are essential to participation...and Wilson Family Chiropractic has them!


One set of researchers wrote that up-to-date evidence does not indicate that any one type of exercise is superior to any other for back pain relief. That is interesting! They did report that exercise is modestly effective treatment for chronic low back pain, a substantial health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common type of exercise for back pain relief was reported to be motor control exercise which works on the deep muscles and their coordination. Supposedly not superior to other types of exercise, motor control exercise should be an option for chronic low back pain patients among other forms of exercise. The researchers suggested that the choice should be made by the patient in collaboration with his/her doctor/therapist. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic chats with each Millville back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That’s the most important factor!
