“Must I exercise?”
“Yes, you should if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Lynchburg
“How much time do I have to spend exercising each day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Palmer Chiropractic Center
Exercise is not every Lynchburg back pain or neck
pain patient’s ’thing’. Palmer Chiropractic Center knows.
Exercise is also so important to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Lynchburg
chiropractic patients all along the way to get
the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain relief and prevention.
OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Neck pain sufferers understand how pain
may reduce their neck motion. Such neck pain patients were assessed 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 did the exercise program and received
manual therapy did significantly
better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction,
and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study found
that the optimal stretching time of cervical muscles in patients with chronic
myofascial pain syndrome was 30 seconds as opposed to 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the most
benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing
any negative effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center always highlights
that the appropriate exercise done in proper form does not have to take long to be useful!
Plus, exercise puts some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed anytime.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Integrating exercise training into the
multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make
sense. This type of back pain impacts so many
people globally and is a foremost
source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues
in such back pain patients - were improved with options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center agrees! Exercise is invaluable
in so many ways.
