Severna Park 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 Severna Park chiropractic replies.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Back And Neck Care Center suggests.

Exercise is not every Severna Park back pain or neck pain patient’s ‘cup of tea’. Back And Neck Care Center knows. Exercise is also so important to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Severna Park chiropractic patients all along the way to get the most of the exercise effort so that it pays off in pain relief and prevention.


Neck pain sufferers know how pain may reduce their ability to look around comfortably. 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. 50% 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 opposed to 15 or 60 seconds or no stretching. This allowed the most benefit to pain intensity decrease while minimizing any negative effects on neural function of the involved nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Back And Neck Care Center always highlights that the proper exercise performed in the right way doesn’t have to take long to be effective! Plus, exercise places some control in the hands of its sufferer since exercise can be done anytime.


Incorporating exercise training into the multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make 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 patient to self-management. Recently, researchers proposed that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health issues in these back pain patients - were improved with options like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Back And Neck Care Center agrees! Exercise is valuable in so many ways.
