“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but there is some truth in it, 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.
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 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.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
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
