“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but it’s true, also.
Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you suffer with Severna Park neck
pain or Severna Park back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Back And Neck Care Center 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 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 disclosed
that the general exercise tended to deliver a
more varied range of treatment effects.
Specifically, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of doing daily activities in
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more effective in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise does not 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
for pain reduction by boosting the overall
body condition. Back And Neck Care Center helps Severna Park back pain patients set
up an exercise routine that works for them to get
the most in pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Back And Neck Care Center also aims to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Back And Neck Care Center uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance these clinical outcomes.
A recent report states that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Severna Park chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the right exercise practice to complement your
Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
