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

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) slows life down for its sufferers. Tonawanda chronic low back pain sufferers want their lives back. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often incorporates chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic along with gentle exercise and nutrition. A couple new insights about effective exercise interventions are shared here for our Tonawanda back pain patients’ consideration as it is up to you to select what exercise suits you!


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 beneficial for pain and activity limitation improvement in the short term. Doing both yoga and walking was proposed as 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 modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can do yoga if they want. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation understands that not every exercise option may be our Tonawanda back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are key to participation...and Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has them!


One group of researchers wrote that up-to-date evidence doesn’t indicate that any single form of exercise is better than any other for back pain relief. That’s interesting! They did report 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 described as being motor control exercise which works on the deep muscles and their coordination. Reportedly not superior to other forms of exercise, motor control exercise should be an alternative for chronic low back pain patients among other kinds of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be made by the patient in collaboration with his/her doctor/therapist. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation chats with each Tonawanda back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That is the most important factor!
