Fort Wayne Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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.


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.


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 life possible!
