“Do I have to exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Pflugerville
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Pflugerville Wellness Center
Exercise is not every Pflugerville back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Pflugerville Wellness Center understands.
Exercise is also so key to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Pflugerville
chiropractic patients all along 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 realize how pain
may reduce their neck motion. Such neck pain patients were tested as to
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 performed 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 research project 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 allowed 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center always emphasizes
that the appropriate exercise performed in proper form doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise lays some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done whenever.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Integrating exercise training into the
multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain makes
sense. This type of back pain affects so many
people around the world and is a primary
cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers suggested
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in such back pain patients - were improved with options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center agrees! Exercise is invaluable
in so many ways.
