Manchester Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Do I have to exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Manchester chiropractic replies.

“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”

“Not long, just properly,” Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries advises.

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 and relief.

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 effective! 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 options 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.
