Amelia Chiropractic Clinic follows a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that.

A couple recent insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our Fernandina Beach back pain patients’ consideration as it’s for you to decide to choose what exercise suits you!

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 for pain and activity limitation improvement in the short term. Doing both yoga and walking was suggested to be a beneficial combination for chronic low back pain patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga was said to decrease 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. However it had similar effects on pain and disability as other exercise types or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can walk. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they want. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows not every exercise option may be our Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are key to participation...and Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One group of researchers wrote that current evidence does not suggest that any single type of exercise is better than any other for back pain relief. That is interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for chronic low back pain, a significant health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common form of exercise for back pain relief was described as being motor control exercise working 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 suggested that the choice should be up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic chats with each Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That’s the most important factor!
