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 was found to be 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. Doing both yoga and walking was proposed as a valuable 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 when compared with non-exercise, usual care, and education. However it had equal effects on pain and disability as other exercise modes or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some enjoy physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they so desire. Pflugerville Wellness Center knows not every exercise option may be our Pflugerville back pain sufferer’s “thing”! Options are key to participation...and Pflugerville Wellness Center has them!

MOTOR CONTROL EXERCISES

One group of researchers wrote that current evidence does not propose that any single 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 significant health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common type of exercise for back pain relief was reported to be motor control exercise working 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center talks with each Pflugerville back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be performed. That is the key!
