Richmond Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Do I have to exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Richmond chiropractic replies.

“How much time do I have to spend exercising each day?”

“Not long, just effectively,” Johnson Chiropractic suggests.

Exercise is not every Richmond back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Johnson Chiropractic knows. Exercise is also so key to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Richmond chiropractic patients all along the way to make 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 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. Half of them were then also 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 found 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 best benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing any adverse effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Johnson Chiropractic always stresses that the appropriate exercise done in proper form does not have to take long to be useful! Additionally, exercise places 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 makes sense. Such back pain impacts so many people worldwide and is a primary source 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 these back pain patients - were improved with options like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Johnson Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is valuable on so many fronts.
