Vancouver Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”

“The kind that you’ll do!”

There is some humor in that response, but there is some truth in it, 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.


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.


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 figure out the best suited exercises and the appropriate exercise routine to complement your Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
