La Grande Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

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

“The kind that you’ll do!”

There is some humor in that delivery, but there is some truth in it, too. Exercise that you will do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you experience La Grande neck pain or La Grande back pain, strengthening exercise is positive. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is ready to help you find exercise you will do and exercise that will benefit you.


General strength and conditioning exercise benefits chronic low back pain patients, particularly in terms of pain intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise to motor control exercise with manual therapy revealed that the general exercise tended to deliver a more assorted range of treatment outcomes. In particular, the general exercise bettered trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of moving in chronic low back pain patients. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature showed that motor control exercise is more successful in decreasing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise doesn’t show itself to be better than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous to decrease pain by improving the overall body condition. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC helps La Grande back pain patients establish an exercise routine that works for them to get the most in pain reduction and increase strength.


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC also aims to get the most back pain reduction and strength improvement by combining exercise with chiropractic treatment. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enhance these clinical outcomes. A recent 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 La Grande chiropractor and you will figure out the best suited exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your La Grande chiropractic treatment plan to get you feeling the best you can!
