Manahawkin 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’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Manahawkin neck pain or Manahawkin back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here 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 revealed that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a more assorted range of treatment results. In particular, the general exercise bettered 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 successful in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise does not show itself to be healthier than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What does this mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is beneficial to decrease pain by boosting the overall body condition. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center helps Manahawkin back pain patients set up an exercise routine that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and increase strength.


Manahawkin Chiropractic Center also aims to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise with chiropractic treatment. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to boost these clinical outcomes. A recent report says that blending manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise by itself for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Manahawkin chiropractor and you will determine the proper exercises and the appropriate exercise routine to complement your Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
