Nashua Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

April 20, 2021

“Do I have to exercise?”

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

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Moriarty Chiropractic suggests.

Exercise is not every Nashua back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Moriarty Chiropractic knows. Exercise is also so vital to our back and neck pain patient’s recovery and future prevention of the pain. We are with our Nashua chiropractic patients all along the way to get the most of the exercise effort so that it results in pain prevention and relief.


Neck pain sufferers know how pain may decrease 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 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 did the exercise program and were treated managed significantly better as far as range of motion, pain intensity reduction, and the flexion-rotation test. (1) Another study revealed 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 reduction while diminishing any negative effects on neural function of the affected nerve roots and central nervous system. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic always highlights that the proper exercise done in proper form does not have to take long to be useful! Additionally, exercise puts 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 makes sense. This type of back pain involves so many people around the world and is a foremost cause 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 struggles in such back pain patients - were improved with choices like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Moriarty Chiropractic agrees! Exercise is valuable in so many ways.
