“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that response,
but it is true, too.
Exercise that you will do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you experience Vancouver neck
pain or Vancouver back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Vancouver Disc Centers 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 relief. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy disclosed
that the general exercise was more apt to provide a
more varied range of treatment outcomes.
Specifically, the general exercise bettered
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, alone, motor
control exercise doesn’t show itself to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is helpful
for pain reduction by boosting the overall
body condition. Vancouver Disc Centers helps Vancouver back pain patients set
up an exercise routine that works for them to get
the most in pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Vancouver Disc Centers also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Vancouver Disc Centers uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance these clinical outcomes.
A new report states that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Vancouver chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the appropriate exercise routine to complement your
Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
