Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge chiropractic replies.

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

“Not long, just properly,” Spine & Sports Rehab Center suggests.

Exercise is not every Baton Rouge back pain or neck pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 Baton Rouge chiropractic patients every step of the way to make the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain relief and prevention.

OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Neck pain sufferers understand how pain may decrease 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 also treated with manual therapy applied to the C0-C1 and C2-C3 cervical spine levels. Those who did the exercise program and received manual therapy did significantly better in terms of 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 contrasted with 15 or 60 seconds or no stretching. This permitted the most benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing any negative effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 done anytime.

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 affects so many people around the world and is a leading 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 issues in such back pain patients - were enhanced with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center agrees! Exercise is invaluable in so many ways.
