What forms of exercise help neck and back pain?

Gerald M. Silverman
Chiropractic Medicine
General exercises, yoga, tai chi, and Pilates are essentially different forms of exercise that create movement for the spine and surrounding muscles -- and can serve as exercise-based therapy options for your neck and back pain. No single approach enjoys any specific advantages or benefits over the others, and because they all get the same results, choosing your method of exercise is more a matter of lifestyle preferences than anything else. The important thing is that you choose a discipline you'll feel comfortable with and one you are likely to continue with.
