The results are striking, and if you’re reading this from a pain perspective, you’re probably wondering which one you should get.
The most common answers, of course, are either a traditional relaxation or a progressive muscle relaxer.
Both offer similar benefits to the original, and both are effective in relieving pain and improving overall health.
However, in a new study published in PLOS One, a team of researchers from the University of Queensland, the University at Buffalo, and the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands found that one form of a progressive relaxer could be more effective than the other.
For the study, the researchers recruited patients with back pain to undergo a two-hour progressive muscle-relaxer exercise protocol, where they used a hand-held device called a texturizer, which was similar to a pain reliever.
The device’s primary objective was to decrease pain and improve circulation.
“In addition, we tested whether the two devices can produce different outcomes for different types of back pain patients,” the authors wrote in their report.
To find out, they tested whether patients were able to control their breathing during the exercise sessions, and whether they experienced significant improvements in their physical performance.
They found that, although both types of devices produced the same degree of improvement in physical performance, the progressive relaxers produced more beneficial changes in patients with chronic pain.
They also found that the texturizers had a stronger effect on patients with moderate back pain, which is the most common type of back-related pain.
These patients were also more likely to benefit from the other types of exercises, including a warm-up and stretching routine.
While the findings are preliminary, it’s clear that the progressive muscle restorative exercises, like the one presented here, can improve the physical condition of patients with a range of back and neck injuries.
And the researchers suggest that these types of restorative activities can also help reduce the impact of pain on patients.
It’s worth noting that, while there are a number of rest-related activities you can perform during the progressive exercise protocol like sit-ups and walking, this one has the added benefit of providing a good warm-down.
This type of exercise is also one of the easiest exercises to do for patients with non-back pain, and you can even do it for a longer period of time.
So, if you have chronic back problems and your pain level is getting worse, this type of progressive exercise may be the one to try.
The study was conducted by Professor Richard J. Kasten, an Associate Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University College of London, and Dr. Eliza G. Dutson, Professor of Neurology at the Mayo Clinic, in collaboration with a team from the Australian National University, the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, the Australian and New Zealand University of Technology in Sydney, and others.
