“Do I have to exercise?”
“Yes, you should if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your West Palm Beach
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Moses Chiropractic
Exercise is not every West Palm Beach back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Moses Chiropractic understands.
Exercise is also so important to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our West Palm Beach
chiropractic patients every step of the way to get
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 reduce their ability to look around
comfortably. Such neck pain patients were assessed 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 received
manual therapy benefitted significantly
better in terms of range of motion, pain intensity reduction,
and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another research project found
that the optimal stretching time of cervical muscles in patients with chronic
myofascial pain syndrome was 30 seconds as contrasted with 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the most
benefit to pain intensity decrease while diminishing
any adverse effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Moses Chiropractic always highlights
that the proper exercise done in proper form doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise lays some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed whenever.
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 involves so many
people around the world and is a leading
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 improved with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Moses Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is invaluable
in so many ways.
