“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some wit in that response,
but it’s true, too.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you suffer with Baton Rouge neck
pain or Baton Rouge back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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, particularly in terms of pain
intensity relief. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy made known
that the general exercise tended to provide a
more varied range of treatment effects.
Specifically, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of moving in
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed 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 better
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 improving the overall
body condition. Spine & Sports Rehab Center helps Baton Rouge back pain patients set
up an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Spine & Sports Rehab Center also aims to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Spine & Sports Rehab Center uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to boost these clinical outcomes.
A new report states 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor and you will
determine the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your
Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
