“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”
“The kind that you’ll do!”
There is some wit in that delivery,
but it’s true, also.
Exercise that you’ll do is the most valuable exercise
of all! Whether you suffer with Oxford neck
pain or Oxford back pain, strengthening exercise is
positive. Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise
to motor control exercise with manual therapy disclosed
that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a
more diverse range of treatment effects.
In particular, the general exercise bettered
trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus
muscle volume, and fear of movement for
patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A
Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that
motor control exercise is more successful in decreasing
chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor
control exercise does not show itself to be better
than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous
for pain reduction by improving the overall
body condition. Satterwhite Chiropractic helps Oxford back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Satterwhite Chiropractic also works to get the most
back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise
with chiropractic treatment. Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 by itself for non-specific neck
pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Oxford chiropractor and you will
figure out the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise routine to complement your
Oxford chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best
