“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you have Fort Wayne neck
pain or Fort Wayne back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 helps
chronic low back pain patients, especially in terms of pain
intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy revealed
that the general exercise tended to deliver a
more diverse range of treatment results.
Specifically, the general exercise improved
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 efficient in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise doesn’t show itself to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is helpful
to decrease pain by improving the overall
body condition. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps Fort Wayne back pain patients set
up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc also aims to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A recent report says that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Fort Wayne chiropractor and you will
determine the proper exercises and the right exercise practice to complement your
Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
