Some recent insights about effective exercise interventions are shared here for our West Palm Beach back pain patients’ consideration as it is up to you to select 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 slightly superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more effective for pain and activity limitation improvement in the short term. Combining both walking and yoga was suggested to be a beneficial combination for chronic low back pain 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 compared to non-exercise, usual care, and education. But it had similar 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 perform yoga if they so desire. Moses Chiropractic understands that not every exercise option may be our West Palm Beach back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are key to participation...and Moses Chiropractic has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One set of researchers wrote that up-to-date evidence does not indicate that any single type of exercise is better than any other for back pain relief. That’s interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for CLBP, a substantial health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common type of exercise for back pain relief was described as being motor control exercise which works 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 forms of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) Moses Chiropractic talks with each West Palm Beach back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That’s the most important factor!
