Baton Rouge Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Baton Rouge chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation advises.

Exercise is not every Baton Rouge back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. 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 and relief.

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 proper 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.
