“Do I have to exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Malverne
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just effectively,” Malverne Health & Wellness
Exercise is not every Malverne back pain or neck
pain patient’s ’thing’. Malverne Health & Wellness 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 Malverne
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 realize how pain
may decrease their ability to look around
comfortably. Such neck pain patients were tested 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 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 allowed the most
benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing
any adverse effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness always highlights
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 performed 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 worldwide and is a leading
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 enhanced with options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness agrees! Exercise is invaluable
on so many fronts.
