Williamson Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Do I have to exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Williamson chiropractic replies.

“How long do I have to exercise every day?”

“Not long, just properly,” Apple Country Chiropractic suggests.

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.


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.


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.
