The Novelli Wellness Center offers a chiropractic treatment plan with options that do exactly that. The treatment plan often involves chiropractic spinal manipulation like Cox® Technic as well as gentle exercise and nutrition. A couple of the latest insights about effective exercise interventions are presented here for our Buffalo, NY back pain patients’ consideration as it’s for you to decide to choose what exercise suits you!


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 slightly superior for intermediate term pain relief and activity limitation improvement while yoga was more effective 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 was said to decrease 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. But it had equal effects on pain and disability as other exercise types or physical therapy. (2) Most everyone can take a stroll. Some like physical therapy exercise. Most can perform yoga if they so desire. The Novelli Wellness Center knows not every exercise option may be our Buffalo, NY back pain sufferer’s "cup of tea”! Options are key to participation...and The Novelli Wellness Center has them!


One group of researchers wrote that current evidence doesn’t propose that any one form of exercise is better than any other for back pain relief. That is interesting! They did report that exercise is modestly effective treatment for CLBP, a major health and socioeconomic issue (cost, disability, missed work).  The most common form of exercise for back pain relief was reported as 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 forms of exercise. The researchers indicated that the choice should be up to the patient and his/her doctor/therapist as to what works. (3) The Novelli Wellness Center talks with each Buffalo, NY back pain sufferer to find out what exercise will work and will be done. That is the key!
