“Do I have to exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better faster and prevent pain,“ your Williamson
“How long do I
have to exercise every day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Apple Country Chiropractic
Exercise is not every Williamson back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Apple Country Chiropractic knows.
Exercise is also so key to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Williamson
chiropractic patients every step of the way to make
the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain relief and prevention.
OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Neck pain sufferers know how pain
may decrease their ability to look around
comfortably. Such neck pain patients were tested as to
their cervical range of motion and pain intensity with a flexion-rotation test.
They were then directed to do a 20-minutes cervical spine
exercise session. Half of them were then additionally
treated with manual therapy applied to the C0-C1 and C2-C3 cervical spine
levels. Those who performed the exercise program and were treated managed significantly
better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction,
and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study revealed
that the optimal stretching time of cervical muscles in patients with chronic
myofascial pain syndrome was 30 seconds as contrasted with 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This permitted the best
benefit to pain intensity decrease while diminishing
any negative effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic always stresses
that the proper exercise done in the right
way doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise puts some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done anytime.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Integrating exercise training into the
multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make
sense. Such back pain involves so many
people globally and is a foremost
source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers suggested
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues
in these back pain patients - were improved with options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is valuable
in so many ways.
