“Must I exercise?”

“How long do I
have to exercise every day?”
“Not long, just properly,” Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
Exercise is not every Paramus back pain or neck
pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 Paramus
chiropractic patients every step of 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 understand how pain
may reduce their neck motion. 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. 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 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 reduction while diminishing
any adverse effects on neural function of the involved
nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center always highlights
that the appropriate exercise done in the right
way does not have to take long to be effective!
Additionally, exercise places some control in the
hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed 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 affects so many
people worldwide and is a leading
cause 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 options
like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga,
and stabilization exercise. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center agrees! Exercise is invaluable
on so many fronts.
