“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some wit in that response,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you will do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you experience Lynchburg neck
pain or Lynchburg back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Palmer Chiropractic Center is ready to help you find
exercise you will do and exercise that will benefit 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 disclosed
that the general exercise tended to deliver a
more assorted range of treatment outcomes.
In particular, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of moving in
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that
motor control exercise is more effective in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise doesn’t show itself to be healthier
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 boosting the overall
body condition. Palmer Chiropractic Center helps Lynchburg back pain patients set
up an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Palmer Chiropractic Center also works to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Palmer Chiropractic Center uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes.
A new report states that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Lynchburg chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the best
suited exercise routine to complement your
Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
