Carrolltown Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Carrolltown chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation suggests.

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! Additionally, 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.
