Toronto Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Do I have to exercise?”

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

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre advises.

Exercise is not every Toronto back pain or neck pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands. Exercise is also so key to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Toronto chiropractic patients all along 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 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. 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 managed significantly better in terms of 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 permitted the best benefit to pain intensity decrease while diminishing any adverse effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre always highlights that the appropriate exercise done in proper form doesn’t have to take long to be effective! Additionally, exercise puts 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 globally 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 issues in such back pain patients - were improved with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre agrees! Exercise is valuable on so many fronts.
