Fort Wayne Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

April 20, 2021

“Do I have to exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better quicker 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 knows. Exercise is also so key 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 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 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 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 did the exercise program and were treated benefitted significantly better as far as 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 allowed the most benefit to pain intensity reduction while diminishing any negative effects on neural function of the involved 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 useful! Additionally, exercise lays 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 makes sense. Such back pain impacts so many people globally 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 these back pain patients - were improved 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.
