“Must I exercise?”
“Only exercise if you want to feel
better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Largo
“How much time do I have to spend exercising every day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Hollstrom & Associates Inc
Exercise is not every Largo back pain or neck
pain patient’s ’thing’. Hollstrom & Associates Inc understands.
Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain
patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Largo
chiropractic patients all along the way to get
the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain prevention
OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES
Neck pain sufferers know 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 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 did 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 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 permitted the best
benefit to pain intensity reduction while minimizing
any adverse effects on neural function of the affected
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc always stresses
that the proper exercise done in proper form doesn’t have to take long to be useful!
Additionally, exercise places some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done whenever.
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 impacts so many
people around the world and is a primary
cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back
pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed
that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles
in such back pain patients - were improved with choices
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc agrees! Exercise is valuable
in so many ways.
