“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.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING EXERCISE HELPS
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.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
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!
