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

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) negatively impacts life for its sufferers. Largo chronic low back pain sufferers want their lives back. Hollstrom & Associates Inc has a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do just that. The treatment plan often includes chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic together with gentle exercise and nutrition. A couple recent insights about effective exercise interventions are shared here for our Largo back pain patients’ consideration as it’s for you to decide 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 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. Combining both walking and yoga was suggested to be a valuable combination for CLBP 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 compared to non-exercise, usual care, and education. However it had the same effects on pain and disability as other exercise modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can do yoga if they want. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows not every exercise option may be our Largo back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are essential to participation...and Hollstrom & Associates Inc has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One set of researchers wrote that current evidence doesn’t propose 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 major health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common type of exercise for back pain relief was reported as motor control exercise working on the deep muscles and their coordination. Supposedly not superior to other types 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 up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc talks with each Largo back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That’s the most important factor!
