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

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) slows life down for its sufferers. Montreal chronic low back pain sufferers want their lives back. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often involves chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic along with gentle exercise and nutrition. A few new insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our Montreal back pain patients’ consideration as it’s up to you to choose 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 beneficial combination for chronic low back pain patients. (1) In an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials, yoga reportedly decreased 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 the same effects on pain and disability as other exercise types or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can walk. Some like physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they so desire. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands that not every exercise option may be our Montreal back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are essential to participation...and Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One group of researchers wrote that present evidence does not indicate that any one form of exercise is better than any other for back pain relief. That is 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 form of exercise for back pain relief was described as being motor control exercise working on the deep muscles and their coordination. Supposedly not superior to other forms of exercise, motor control exercise should be an option for chronic low back pain patients among other forms 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. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic talks with each Montreal back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That’s the key!
