Ashburn Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”

“The kind that you will do!”

There is some wit in that response, but it’s true, too. Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable exercise of all! Whether you have Ashburn neck pain or Ashburn back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is ready to help you find exercise you will do and exercise that will help you.


General strength and conditioning exercise benefits 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 made known that the general exercise was more apt to provide a more diverse range of treatment results. Specifically, the general exercise bettered trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of movement in chronic low back pain patients. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that motor control exercise is more efficient in decreasing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise doesn’t 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 helpful to decrease pain by improving the overall body condition. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps Ashburn back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and increase strength.


Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn also works to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise with chiropractic treatment. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to boost such clinical outcomes. A recent report says that combining manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Ashburn chiropractor and you will determine the proper exercises and the right exercise practice to complement your Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
