“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you will do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but it’s true, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you experience West Des Moines neck
pain or West Des Moines back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is ready to help you find
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 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 outcomes.
Specifically, 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 efficient in reducing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise doesn’t stand out to be healthier
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial
to decrease pain by boosting the overall
body condition. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps West Des Moines back pain patients set
up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa also aims to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A new report states that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise alone for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your West Des Moines chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise practice to complement your
West Des Moines chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
