“Must I exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Carrolltown
“How long do I
have to exercise every day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
Exercise is not every Carrolltown back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 Carrolltown
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 understand how pain
may decrease their neck motion. Such neck pain patients were tested for
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 did the exercise program and were treated did 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 opposed to 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the most
benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing
any adverse effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation always highlights
that the proper exercise done in the right
way doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Plus, exercise lays 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 makes
sense. Such back pain affects so many
people around the world and is a primary
cause 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 issues
in such back pain patients - were enhanced with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation agrees! Exercise is invaluable
in so many ways.
