“Must I exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Millville
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Wilson Family Chiropractic
Exercise is not every Millville back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Wilson Family Chiropractic understands.
Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Millville
chiropractic patients all along the way to make
the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain relief and prevention.
OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Neck pain sufferers realize how pain
may decrease 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 instructed to do a 20-minutes cervical spine
exercise session. Half of them were then also
treated with manual therapy applied to the C0-C1 and C2-C3 cervical spine
levels. Those who performed the exercise program and received
manual therapy managed significantly
better in terms of 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 opposed to 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the best
benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing
any adverse effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic always stresses
that the proper exercise performed in the right
way does not have to take long to be effective!
Plus, exercise places some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed whenever.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Incorporating exercise training into the
multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make
sense. This type of back pain involves so many
people globally and is a primary
source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers suggested
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in such back pain patients - were improved with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is valuable
in so many ways.
