Latest News in Gentle Auburn Exercise for Chronic Low Back Pain Relief

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) slows life down for its sufferers. Auburn chronic low back pain sufferers want their lives back. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often includes chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic as well as gentle exercise and nutrition. Some recent insights about effective exercise interventions are shared here for our Auburn back pain patients’ consideration as it is up to you to choose what exercise works for 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 slightly superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more effective to reduce pain and improve activity in the short term. Doing both yoga and walking was suggested to be a valuable combination for CLBP patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga was reported 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 the same 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 so desire. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands that not every exercise option may be our Auburn back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are essential to participation...and Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One group of researchers wrote that present evidence doesn’t propose that any single form 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 substantial 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 working on the deep muscles and their coordination. Reportedly not superior to other types of exercise, motor control exercise should be an option for chronic low back pain patients among other types of exercise. The researchers suggested that the choice should be up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. talks with each Auburn back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That is the key!
