“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some wit in that response,
but it’s true, also.
Exercise that you will do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you have Williamson neck
pain or Williamson back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Apple Country Chiropractic is here to help you figure out what
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 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 movement in
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more efficient 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
to decrease pain by improving the overall
body condition. Apple Country Chiropractic helps Williamson back pain patients set
up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Apple Country Chiropractic also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Apple Country Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes.
A new report states that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise alone for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Williamson chiropractor and you will
determine the proper exercises and the right exercise practice to complement your
Williamson chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
