“Do I have to exercise?”
“Yes, you should if you want to feel
better faster and prevent pain,“ your Pensacola
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
Exercise is not every Pensacola back pain or neck
pain patient’s ’thing’. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows.
Exercise is also so important to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Pensacola
chiropractic patients every step of the way to make
the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain prevention
OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Neck pain sufferers know how pain
may reduce their neck motion. Such neck pain patients were assessed as to
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 did the exercise program and were treated benefitted significantly
better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction,
and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another research project revealed
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 best
benefit to pain intensity reduction while minimizing
any negative effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center always stresses
that the appropriate exercise performed in the right
way doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise lays 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 affects so many
people around the world and is a foremost
cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in these back pain patients - were improved with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center agrees! Exercise is valuable
on so many fronts.
