WALKING AND MIND-BODY THERAPIES: Gentle Exercise Options

Walking works, so do mind-body therapies like yoga. An analysis of 31 randomized control trials of 3193 participants, walking came across as effective as control interventions for short term relief of chronic low back pain and slightly superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more beneficial to reduce pain and improve activity in the short term. Doing both yoga and walking was suggested to be a beneficial combination for CLBP patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga reportedly decreased pain in the short to intermediate term and to improve functional disability from short to long term when compared with non-exercise, usual care, and education. However it had equal effects on pain and disability as other exercise modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can walk. Some like physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they so desire. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows not every exercise option may be our Paramus back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are key to participation...and Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One set of researchers wrote that present evidence does not indicate that any single form of exercise is superior to any other for back pain relief. That’s interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for CLBP, a major health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common type of exercise for back pain relief was reported to be motor control exercise which works on the deep muscles and their coordination. Reportedly not superior to other types of exercise, motor control exercise should be an alternative for chronic low back pain patients among other types of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be made by the patient in collaboration with his/her doctor/therapist. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center talks with each Paramus back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That is the key!
