Montreal Chiropractic Plan for Pain Relief and Prevention with Exercise

“Must I exercise?”

“Only exercise if you want to feel better faster and prevent pain,“ your Montreal chiropractic encourages.

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

“Not long, just effectively,” Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic suggests.

Exercise is not every Montreal back pain or neck pain patient’s ’thing’. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 Montreal 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 realize how pain may decrease their ability to look around comfortably. 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 performed the exercise program and received manual therapy managed 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic always stresses that the appropriate exercise performed 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 globally and is a foremost 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 such back pain patients - were improved with options like resistance and aerobic exercise while Pilates, resistance exercise, yoga, and stabilization exercise. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic agrees! Exercise is valuable in so many ways.
