“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
Exercise is not every Manchester back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries understands.
Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Manchester
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 decrease 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 directed to do a 20-minutes cervical spine
exercise session. Half of them were then additionally
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 benefitted significantly
better in terms of range of motion, pain intensity reduction,
and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study 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 best
benefit to pain intensity reduction while minimizing
any negative effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries always stresses
that the appropriate exercise performed in the right
way doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise puts 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 impacts so many
people globally and is a foremost
source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers posed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues
in these back pain patients - were enhanced with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries agrees! Exercise is valuable
on so many fronts.
