Lynchburg Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Lynchburg chiropractic replies.

“How much time do I have to spend exercising each day?”

“Not long, just effectively,” Palmer Chiropractic Center advises.

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.
