“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that answer,
but there is some truth in it, too.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you have Eugene neck
pain or Eugene back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is here to help you figure out what
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 deliver a
more assorted range of treatment results.
In particular, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of moving for
chronic low back pain patients. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more effective in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise doesn’t show itself to be better
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous
for pain reduction by improving the overall
body condition. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic helps Eugene back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to get
the most in pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic also works to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to boost these clinical outcomes.
A recent 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 Eugene chiropractor and you will
determine the proper exercises and the best
suited exercise routine to complement your
Eugene chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
