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.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options abound.
One popular method is manual therapy. (Soft Health and Healing Clinic
offers 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.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
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 suggested neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
