“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.
STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING EXERCISE HELPS
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.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
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
