Augusta Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

April 20, 2021

“Must I exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better quicker and prevent pain,“ your Augusta chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic advises.

Exercise is not every Augusta back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 Augusta chiropractic patients every step of the way to get the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain prevention and relief.


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 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 received manual therapy benefitted 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 opposed to 15 or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the best benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing any negative effects on neural function of the involved nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic always stresses that the proper exercise done in the right way does not have to take long to be useful! Plus, exercise places some control in the hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done whenever.


Integrating exercise training into the multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make sense. Such back pain affects so many people globally and is a foremost cause of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers posed 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic agrees! Exercise is valuable in so many ways.
