Toronto Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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.


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.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre also works to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending 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 determine the proper exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your Toronto chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
