Baton Rouge Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

July 14, 2020

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

“The kind that you will do!”

There is some humor in that answer, but it’s true, also. Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Baton Rouge neck pain or Baton Rouge back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is ready to help you find 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 was more apt to provide 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 doing daily activities in chronic low back pain patients. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more successful in decreasing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise doesn’t 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 for pain reduction by improving the overall body condition. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers helps Baton Rouge back pain patients set up an exercise routine that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and improve strength.


Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers also aims to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes. A recent report says that combining manipulative treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional disability more than exercise alone for non-specific neck pain sufferers.
