Brooks Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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 help you.


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 reducing 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.


Soft Health and Healing Clinic also aims to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending 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 routine to complement your Brooks chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
