Exercise for Chronic Low Back Pain
In additional to chiropractic care, an “individually designed” exercise program has also been shown to help relieve chronic low back pain (LBP). Researchers found that an “individually designed exercise therapy program for chronic LBP was associated to clinically significant functional improvement both on discharge and at 1 year. Only severe pain intensity predicted poor treatment response on discharge. At one year, younger age and better mental health predicted improved outcome, while use of drugs and previous LBP treatments were associated with worse response. Adherence to the exercise program almost doubled the probability of a favorable outcome.”
If you suffer from chronic low back pain, ask your doctor of chiropractic about a specific exercise program that can be combined with your chiropractic care.
