“Must I exercise?”
“Yes, you should if you want to feel
better faster and prevent pain,“ your Fort Wayne
“How much time do I have to spend exercising each day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
Exercise is not every Fort Wayne back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients every step of the way to get
the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain prevention
OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Neck pain sufferers know 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 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 reported
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 adverse effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic always stresses
that the appropriate exercise done in the right
way doesn’t have to take long to be effective!
Additionally, 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 makes
sense. Such back pain affects so many
people worldwide and is a leading
cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in such back pain patients - were enhanced with options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic agrees! Exercise is invaluable
in so many ways.
