Fort Wayne Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Do I have to exercise?”

“Yes, you should if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Fort Wayne chiropractic replies.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc suggests.

Exercise is not every Fort Wayne back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc understands. Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Fort Wayne 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 know how pain may reduce their ability to look around comfortably. Such neck pain patients were tested 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. 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 received manual therapy did significantly better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction, and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study 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 best benefit to pain intensity decrease while diminishing any negative effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc always emphasizes that the appropriate exercise performed in proper form does not have to take long to be effective! Additionally, exercise lays some control in the hands of its sufferer since exercise can be performed whenever.


Integrating exercise training into the multidisciplinary treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain does make sense. Such back pain involves so many people worldwide and is a primary source of disability. Proper exercise training transitions the back pain patient to self-management. Recently, researchers suggested that pain intensity and disability - and even mental health struggles in these back pain patients - were enhanced with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc agrees! Exercise is invaluable on so many fronts.
