Brooks Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Do I have to exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Brooks chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just properly,” Soft Health and Healing Clinic advises.

Exercise is not every Brooks back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows. Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Brooks chiropractic patients all along the way to make the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain relief and prevention.

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 were treated 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 opposed to 15 or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the most benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing any negative effects on neural function of the involved nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic always emphasizes that the appropriate exercise done in the right way does not have to take long to be useful! Plus, exercise puts some control in the hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed anytime.

OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Incorporating 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 around the world and is a leading 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 struggles in such back pain patients - were enhanced with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic agrees! Exercise is valuable on so many fronts.
