“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that response,
but it’s true, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you have Toronto neck
pain or Toronto back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 made known
that the general exercise tended to deliver a
more varied range of treatment results.
In particular, the general exercise improved
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of moving for
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more efficient in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise does not stand out to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is useful
to decrease pain by improving the overall
body condition. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps Toronto back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre also works to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A recent report says 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 Toronto chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the best
suited exercise routine to complement your
Toronto chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
