Largo Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

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

“The kind that you’ll do!”

There is some wit in that response, but it’s true, too. Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Largo neck pain or Largo back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is ready to help you figure out what exercise you will do and exercise that will help you.


General strength and conditioning exercise helps chronic low back pain patients, especially in terms of pain intensity relief. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise to motor control exercise with manual therapy revealed that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a more diverse range of treatment results. In particular, the general exercise improved trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of movement in patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more effective in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise does not show itself to be better than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial to decrease pain by improving the overall body condition. Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps Largo back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.


Hollstrom & Associates Inc also works to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enrich these clinical outcomes. A new report says that blending manipulative treatment with exercise reduced pain and improved functional disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Largo chiropractor and you will determine the proper exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your Largo chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
