“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some wit in that response,
but there is some truth in it, 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.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING EXERCISE HELPS
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.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
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!
