Vancouver 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 answer, but it’s true, also. Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable exercise of all! Whether you have Vancouver neck pain or Vancouver back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is here 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, especially in terms of pain intensity reduction. 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 varied range of treatment results. Specifically, the general exercise improved trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of doing daily activities in patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more successful in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise does not show itself to be healthier than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial to decrease pain by boosting the overall body condition. Vancouver Spine Care Centre helps Vancouver back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.


Vancouver Spine Care Centre also aims to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise with chiropractic treatment. Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes. A new report says that blending manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Vancouver chiropractor and you will determine the best suited exercises and the appropriate exercise routine to complement your Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
