Colorado Springs Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

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

“The kind that you will do!”

There is some wit in that response, but there is some truth in it, also. Exercise that you will do is the most valuable exercise of all! Whether you suffer with Colorado Springs neck pain or Colorado Springs back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is ready to help you find 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 made known that the general exercise was more apt to provide a more assorted range of treatment effects. In particular, the general exercise improved trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of doing daily activities for patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that motor control exercise is more efficient in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, on its own, motor control exercise doesn’t stand out to be healthier than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous for pain reduction by boosting the overall body condition. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps Colorado Springs back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.


The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR also works to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to boost these clinical outcomes. A new report states that combining manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Colorado Springs chiropractor and you will figure out the best suited exercises and the right exercise routine to complement your Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
