Brooks Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an ordinary condition bringing patients into our Brooks chiropractic clinic! Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Soft Health and Healing Clinic is here to help coordinate some neck pain relief with a Brooks chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options abound. One popular method is manual therapy. (Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A recent study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise decreased disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) Another research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise by itself. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic has observed that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Using the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Soft Health and Healing Clinic follows the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was valuable. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic finds that Brooks neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
