Latest News in Gentle Fort Wayne Exercise for Chronic Low Back Pain Relief

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) negatively impacts life for its sufferers. Fort Wayne chronic low back pain sufferers want their lives back. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offers 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 couple new insights about effective exercise interventions are shared here for our Fort Wayne back pain patients’ consideration as it is for you to decide to select what exercise works for 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 to reduce pain and improve activity 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 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 modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can walk. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they want. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic understands that not every exercise option may be our Fort Wayne back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are key to participation...and Aaron Chiropractic Clinic has them!


One set of researchers wrote that current evidence doesn’t propose that any one form of exercise is superior to any other for back pain relief. That’s interesting! They did state that exercise is modestly effective treatment for chronic low back pain, a significant health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common form of exercise for back pain relief was reported as 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 types of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic chats with each Fort Wayne back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That is the key!
