“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, too.
Exercise that you will do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you experience Paramus neck
pain or Paramus back pain, strengthening exercise helps. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 benefits
chronic low back pain patients, especially in terms of pain
intensity relief. 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 diverse range of treatment outcomes.
In particular, the general exercise improved
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of moving for
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that
motor control exercise is more effective in reducing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise does not stand out to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What
does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is useful
for pain reduction by boosting the overall
body condition. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps Paramus back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to get
the most in pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center also works to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enrich such clinical outcomes.
A recent report says that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Paramus chiropractor and you will
determine the best suited exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your
Paramus chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
