Baton Rouge Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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.


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.


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!
