“Must I exercise?”
“Yes, you should if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Baton Rouge
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
Exercise is not every Baton Rouge back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows.
Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Baton Rouge
chiropractic patients all along 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 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. 50% 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 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 opposed to 15
or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the best
benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing
any negative effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation always highlights
that the appropriate exercise done in proper form does not have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise lays some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done anytime.
OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Integrating 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
cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers suggested
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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation agrees! Exercise is valuable
in so many ways.
