“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some humor in that delivery,
but it is true, too.
Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you have San Jose neck
pain or San Jose back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Chiropractic Solutions 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 relief. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy made known
that the general exercise tended to deliver a
more diverse range of treatment results.
In particular, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of movement for
chronic low back pain patients. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that
motor control exercise is more efficient in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor
control exercise does not stand out to be better
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 improving the overall
body condition. Chiropractic Solutions helps San Jose back pain patients set
up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Chiropractic Solutions also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic Solutions uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes.
A recent report says that blending manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your San Jose chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the best
suited exercise practice to complement your
San Jose chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
