“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that answer,
but it’s true, too.
Exercise that you will do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you experience Brooks neck
pain or Brooks back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 relief. 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 outcomes.
In particular, 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 effective in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise does not stand out to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous
for pain reduction by boosting the overall
body condition. Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps Brooks back pain patients set
up an exercise routine that works for them to get
the most in pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Soft Health and Healing Clinic also aims to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A new report states that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise alone for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Brooks chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the best
suited exercise practice to complement your
Brooks chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
