Latest News in Gentle Severna Park Exercise for Chronic Low Back Pain Relief

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) slows life down for its sufferers. Severna Park chronic low back pain sufferers want their lives back. Back And Neck Care Center has a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often involves chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic as well as gentle exercise and nutrition. Some recent insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our Severna Park back pain patients’ consideration as it’s up to you to choose what exercise suits 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 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. Combining both walking and yoga was proposed as a valuable combination for chronic low back pain 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 when compared with non-exercise, usual care, and education. However it had equal 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. Back And Neck Care Center understands that not every exercise option may be our Severna Park back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are key to participation...and Back And Neck Care Center has them!


One group of researchers wrote that up-to-date evidence doesn’t suggest 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 form of exercise for back pain relief was reported to be motor control exercise working on the deep muscles and their coordination. Supposedly not superior to other types of exercise, motor control exercise should be an alternative for chronic low back pain patients among other forms of exercise. The researchers suggested that the choice should be up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) Back And Neck Care Center talks with each Severna Park back pain sufferer to learn about what exercise will work and will be done. That’s the key!
