How do you choose exercises to improve your patients' pain? Will your low back pain patient benefit most from exercising painfree or into pain, strengthening or stretching, specific or general exercises? How often, what intensity, how many exercises, sets and reps should they perform? There are so many factors to consider, so how do you know which ones to choose?
Choose a combination that works for your patient, and your patients will make really nice improvements in their pain. Make the wrong choice, and your patients will become disengaged and give their exercises a miss altogether, or their symptoms flare up and they lose confidence in you.
Exercise is an effective, evidence based treatment for pain, but it can be hard to ‘get it right’ for our patients.
