McHenry Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your McHenry chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Spengel Chiropractic suggests.

Exercise is not every McHenry back pain or neck pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Spengel Chiropractic 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 McHenry chiropractic patients every step of the way to make the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain relief and prevention.

OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Neck pain sufferers realize how pain may decrease their neck motion. 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. 50% 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 were treated did significantly better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction, and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study reported 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 affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Spengel Chiropractic always highlights that the proper exercise performed in the right way does not have to take long to be effective! Additionally, exercise lays some control in the hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done whenever.

OPTIMAL LOW BACK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Integrating exercise training into the multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make sense. This type of back pain involves so many people around the world and is a primary cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues in these back pain patients - were enhanced with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Spengel Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is invaluable in so many ways.
