WALKING AND MIND-BODY THERAPIES: Gentle Exercise Options

Walking works, so do mind-body therapies like yoga. An analysis of 31 randomized control trials of 3193 participants, walking came across as effective as control interventions for short term relief of chronic low back pain and somewhat superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more beneficial to reduce pain and improve activity in the short term. Doing both yoga and walking was proposed as a beneficial combination for CLBP patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga reportedly decreased pain in the short to intermediate term and to improve functional disability from short to long term when compared with non-exercise, usual care, and education. But it had the same effects on pain and disability as other exercise modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some like physical therapy exercise. Most can do yoga if they so desire. Layden Chiropractic understands that not every exercise option may be our Plainville back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are key to participation...and Layden Chiropractic has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One group of researchers wrote that current evidence does not indicate that any one type of exercise is superior to any other for back pain relief. That’s interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for chronic low back pain, a major health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common type of exercise for back pain relief was reported to be motor control exercise which works on the deep muscles and their coordination. Reportedly not superior to other forms of exercise, motor control exercise should be an option for chronic low back pain patients among other kinds of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be made by the patient in collaboration with his/her doctor/therapist. (3) Layden Chiropractic talks with each Plainville back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That’s the key!
