What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Do like to hear “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” We all like choices! We all have preferences. Your Toronto chiropractor is up for offering you options when it involves exercise.  Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre just wants you to exercise. You pick how! When you choose, the outcomes are better in terms of satisfaction and pain relief. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre's chiropractic care is all about you and your Toronto back pain relief.


Adding spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain improves their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this come from having a professional check on you and your healing occasionally? If you are doing home exercise all by yourself, you don’t get the benefit of someone being concerned about you, checking on your progress objectively, letting you know you are improving. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here for our Toronto chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is hard to cope with. It often holds you back from doing what you want to do. It tends to also reduce your quality and enjoyment of life.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre wants our Toronto back pain patients to do what they want and like what they do. Exercise is essential. Performing a type of exercise that a back pain patient enjoys raises the probability that he or she will exercise. What do you like to do? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – compared the usefulness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study proposes that either will decrease pain and increase balance and function and that Pilates may be more successful as its exercises aim at the trunk stabilization muscles. Either way, matching patient preference to an exercise program is the goal to boost patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
