“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some wit in that delivery,
but there is some truth in it, also.
Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise
of all! Whether you experience Sandy Springs neck
pain or Sandy Springs back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Cross Chiropractic Center 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 helps
chronic low back pain patients, particularly 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 was more apt to provide a
more assorted range of treatment outcomes.
Specifically, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of movement in
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that
motor control exercise is more efficient in reducing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise doesn’t 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 helpful
for pain reduction by improving the overall
body condition. Cross Chiropractic Center helps Sandy Springs back pain patients set
up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and increase strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Cross Chiropractic Center also aims to maximize
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Cross Chiropractic Center uses The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes.
A recent report states that combining manipulative
treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional
disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Sandy Springs chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the best
suited exercise routine to complement your
Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
