New Roads Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better quicker and prevent pain,“ your New Roads chiropractic replies.

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

“Not long, just properly,” New Roads Chiropractic Center advises.

Exercise is not every New Roads back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. New Roads Chiropractic Center 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 New Roads chiropractic patients all along the way to make the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain relief and prevention.


Neck pain sufferers realize 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 instructed 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 in terms of 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 contrasted with 15 or 60 seconds or no stretching. This permitted 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center always stresses that the proper exercise performed 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.


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 globally and is a leading source 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 options like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center agrees! Exercise is invaluable in so many ways.
