West Des Moines Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“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.


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.


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 says 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 life possible!
