Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs chiropractic replies.

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

“Not long, just properly,” The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR suggests.

Exercise is not every Colorado Springs back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 Colorado Springs chiropractic patients every step of the way to make the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain prevention and relief.

OPTIMAL NECK PAIN EXERCISE GUIDES

Neck pain sufferers realize how pain may reduce their ability to look around comfortably. Such neck pain patients were assessed 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 did significantly better in terms of range of motion, pain intensity reduction, and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study revealed 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 minimizing any adverse effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR always stresses that the appropriate exercise done in the right way does not 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 involves so many people worldwide and is a primary source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back pain sufferer to self-management. Recently, researchers posed that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues in such back pain patients - were enhanced with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR agrees! Exercise is invaluable in so many ways.
