Vancouver Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Vancouver chiropractic replies.

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

“Not long, just properly,” Vancouver Disc Centers suggests.

Exercise is not every Vancouver back pain or neck pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Vancouver Disc Centers understands. Exercise is also so important to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Vancouver chiropractic patients every step of 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 understand how pain may decrease their ability to look around comfortably. 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. Half of them were then additionally treated with manual therapy applied to the C0-C1 and C2-C3 cervical spine levels. Those who performed the exercise program and received manual therapy managed significantly better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction, and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study found 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 allowed the most benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing any negative effects on neural function of the involved nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers always emphasizes that the proper exercise done in the right way doesn’t have to take long to be useful! Additionally, exercise places 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 makes sense. This type of back pain affects so many people globally and is a leading cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers posed 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) Vancouver Disc Centers agrees! Exercise is invaluable in so many ways.
