“Must I exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Sandy Springs
“How much time do I have to spend exercising each day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Cross Chiropractic Center
Exercise is not every Sandy Springs back pain or neck
pain patient’s ’thing’. Cross Chiropractic Center 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 Sandy Springs
chiropractic patients every step of the way to get
the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain 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 tested as to
their cervical range of motion and pain intensity with a flexion-rotation test.
They were then directed to do a 20-minutes cervical spine
exercise session. 50% of them were then additionally
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 reported
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 permitted the most
benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing
any negative effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center always stresses
that the appropriate exercise performed 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 done anytime.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Incorporating exercise training into the
multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain makes
sense. Such back pain impacts so many
people worldwide and is a leading
source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in these back pain patients - were enhanced with options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center agrees! Exercise is invaluable
on so many fronts.
