Vancouver 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 Vancouver chiropractic encourages.

“How long do I have to exercise each day?”

“Not long, just effectively,” Vancouver Spine Care Centre suggests.

Exercise is not every Vancouver back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 Vancouver chiropractic patients every step of the way to get the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain prevention and relief.

OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Neck pain sufferers know how pain may decrease their ability to look around comfortably. Such neck pain patients were tested 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 performed the exercise program and received manual therapy managed significantly better in terms of range of motion, pain intensity reduction, and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study 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 adverse effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre always stresses that the appropriate exercise performed in the right way doesn’t have to take long to be useful! Plus, exercise lays some control in the hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed whenever.

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 worldwide and is a primary source 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 such back pain patients - were enhanced with options like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre agrees! Exercise is invaluable in so many ways.
