Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Spinal Care Clinic suggests.

Exercise is not every Burlington and Hamilton back pain or neck pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Spinal Care Clinic 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients every step of the way to make the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain prevention and relief.

OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Neck pain sufferers understand how pain may decrease their ability to look around comfortably. Such neck pain patients were tested 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 additionally 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 did 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 diminishing any adverse effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Spinal Care Clinic always stresses that the proper exercise done in the right way doesn’t have to take long to be useful! Additionally, exercise places 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 does make sense. This type of back pain affects so many people worldwide and is a foremost cause 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 struggles in such back pain patients - were enhanced with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Spinal Care Clinic agrees! Exercise is invaluable on so many fronts.
