Sitka 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 humor in that answer, but it’s true, too. Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Sitka neck pain or Sitka back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka 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, particularly in terms of pain intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise to motor control exercise with manual therapy disclosed that the general exercise tended to provide a more diverse 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 for chronic low back pain patients. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more effective in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise does not stand out to be better than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial to decrease pain by improving the overall body condition. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps Sitka back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and increase strength.


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka also aims to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to boost such clinical outcomes. A recent report states that blending manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Sitka chiropractor and you will determine the best suited exercises and the best suited exercise practice to complement your Sitka chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
