Groton 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 it’s true, also. Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you suffer with Groton neck pain or Groton back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is here to help you figure out what exercise you will do and exercise that will benefit you.


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 was more apt to provide a more assorted range of treatment effects. Specifically, the general exercise bettered 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 showed that motor control exercise is more efficient in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, 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 useful for pain reduction by improving the overall body condition. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office helps Groton back pain patients set up an exercise practice that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and improve strength.


Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office also works to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes. A recent report says that combining manipulative treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Groton chiropractor and you will determine the proper exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your Groton chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
