“Must I exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better faster and prevent pain,“ your Ashburn
“How much time do I have to spend exercising each day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
Exercise is not every Ashburn back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 Ashburn
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 realize 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 instructed 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 managed significantly
better in terms of 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 contrasted with 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This permitted the best
benefit to pain intensity decrease while diminishing
any adverse effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn always highlights
that the appropriate exercise done in proper form doesn’t have to take long to be effective!
Plus, 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 does make
sense. Such back pain involves so many
people worldwide and is a primary
cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in such back pain patients - were enhanced with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn agrees! Exercise is invaluable
on so many fronts.
