“Do I have to exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better faster and prevent pain,“ your Vancouver
“How long do I
have to exercise each day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Vancouver Spine Care Centre
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
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.
