“Doc, what kind 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 valuable exercise of all! Whether you have Nashua neck pain or Nashua back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Moriarty 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, particularly in terms of pain intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise to motor control exercise with manual therapy revealed that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a more assorted range of treatment results. In particular, the general exercise bettered trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of doing daily activities for patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that motor control exercise is more successful 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’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial for pain reduction by boosting the overall body condition. Moriarty Chiropractic helps Nashua back pain patients set up an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.
EXERCISE AND MANIPULATION
Moriarty Chiropractic also works to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Moriarty Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enhance these clinical outcomes. A new report states that blending manipulative treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck pain sufferers.
