“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that answer,
but it’s true, too.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you have Richmond neck
pain or Richmond back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Johnson Chiropractic is ready to help you find
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, particularly in terms of pain
intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy made known
that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a
more assorted range of treatment results.
Specifically, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of doing daily activities for
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more successful in reducing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise does not stand out to be better
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous
to decrease pain by improving the overall
body condition. Johnson Chiropractic helps Richmond back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Johnson Chiropractic also works to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Johnson Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A new report says that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Richmond chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the best
suited exercise routine to complement your
Richmond chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
