Studies show that chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy, rehabilitative exercise, and home exercise care are all effective therapies for chronic long term care of low back pain in the elderly and combining the 3 together produces the best outcomes reducing pain by 30-40% over a 12 week period.
Our Orlando Chiropractor Dr. David Young always promotes different at home exercises such as yoga, planks, bridges, and other exercises to do at home, sometimes just as easy as walking, to provide the best results from treatment and to try and minimize chronic back aches and pains to as little as possible.
