What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing to you? We all like options! We all have favorites. Your McHenry chiropractor is prepared to give you options when it involves exercise.  OrthoIllinois Chiropractic just wants you to exercise. You decide how! When you get to pick, the outcomes are better in terms of satisfaction and pain relief. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic's chiropractic care is all about you and your McHenry back pain relief.


Including spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain enriches their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this come from having a professional check on you and your healing periodically? If you are doing home exercise alone, you do not benefit from someone being concerned about you, checking on your progress objectively, letting you know you are improving. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is here for our McHenry chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is tough to cope with. It often holds you back from doing what you want to do. It tends to also diminish your quality and enjoyment of life.


OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wants our McHenry back pain patients to perform what they desire and enjoy what they do. Exercise helps. Doing a type of exercise that a back pain patient enjoys boosts the chance that he or she will exercise. What do you enjoy doing? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – compared the usefulness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study proposes that either will reduce pain and improve balance and function and that Pilates may be more effective since its exercises target the trunk stabilization muscles. Both ways, matching patient preference to an exercise program is the goal to boost patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
