Exercise for Buffalo, NY Arm Pain and Neck Pain Relief

Non-surgical neck pain treatment alleviates such cervical spine related pain. What does that treatment include? Researchers and clinicians grapple with that question all the time. Where does the answer lie? With you, the neck pain patient, the arm pain patient. The chiropractic treatment plan from the passive pain-relieving treatment to the self-management tools are formed to each individual neck pain sufferer. The Novelli Wellness Center is the neck pain sufferer’s partner in the path to Buffalo, NY neck pain relief.

NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT OF NECK PAIN STAGES

A set of experts in the conservative management of cervical radiculopathy (neck-related arm pain) convened to establish a list of effective non-surgical treatment modalities at different stages of pain (acute, subacute, chronic). The stage matters. In the acute stage, more passive pain-relieving interventions – spinal manipulation, patient education, specific foraminal opening exercise, pain-relieving position - were considered important. As patients progress through subacute (increased physical activity, supervised motor control, specific exercise, and neurodynamic mobilization) to chronic (general aerobic exercise, strength training), more personalized physical activity and self-management were stated as important. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center agrees with this individualized plan and understands there is a careful balance between passive treatment and active exercise for most favorable results.

HOW MUCH TREATMENT FOR NECK PAIN?

Thirty-seven experts set out to determine the proper dosage and type of motor control and segmental exercise was optimal for chronic non-specific neck pain. They agreed most that there were 3 dosage variables: intensity, frequency, and reps. As for which exercise, dosage, procedure, progression, etc., they agreed that prescribing exercise was not simple and must be individualized, acceptable, and feasible to the patient. (2) The Novelli Wellness Center wholeheartedly agrees! We work with our Buffalo, NY neck pain patients to ensure the exercises work for them and their spinal condition and willingness to do the exercises.

ACTIVE CARE OF NECK & ARM PAIN: Exercise

Exercise recommendations for chronic non-specific neck pain have not been well defined. A review of published studies on this topic showed that (A) many exercise programs decrease pain and disability in the short term, (B) pillar exercises decrease pain and disability in the intermediate term, and (C) motor control plus segmental exercises produce moderate to great pain reduction overall. Long term pain reducing exercise recommendations have not been analyzed. (3) Another aspect of exercise for neck and arm pain patients is the respiratory aspect. Neck pain and forward head posture as seen in smartphone users were discussed in a comparison study: control, routine therapeutic exercise, (combined) routine therapeutic exercise with respiratory exercises. After 8 weeks, the combined group had significant differences in diaphragm muscle activation, respiratory balance, and number of breaths. (4) Pain and breathing can be friends when done properly. The Novelli Wellness Center works with each patient to determine what exercises are best for each patient’s stage of pain to improve each one’s condition.
