Plainville Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“Doc, what type of exercise do you think would help?”

“The kind that you will do!”

There is some wit in that delivery, but it’s true, also. Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you suffer with Plainville neck pain or Plainville back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Layden Chiropractic is here to help you figure out what exercise you will do and exercise that will benefit you.


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 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 doesn’t 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. Layden Chiropractic helps Plainville back pain patients set up an exercise practice that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and increase strength.


Layden Chiropractic also works to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Layden Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes. A recent report says that blending manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Plainville chiropractor and you will figure out the best suited exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your Plainville chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
