“Do I have to exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better faster and prevent pain,“ your Oxford
“How long do I
have to exercise each day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Satterwhite Chiropractic
Exercise is not every Oxford back pain or neck
pain patient’s ’thing’. Satterwhite Chiropractic understands.
Exercise is also so important to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Oxford
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 decrease their neck motion. 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. 50% of them were then also
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 benefitted 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 opposed to 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This permitted the most
benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing
any adverse effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic always highlights
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 done anytime.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Integrating exercise training into the
multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain makes
sense. Such back pain affects so many
people globally and is a leading
source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers suggested
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues
in these back pain patients - were improved with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is valuable
on so many fronts.
