Eugene 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 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.


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 increase strength.


Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic also aims 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 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 Eugene chiropractor and you will determine the best suited exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your Eugene chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
