Brooks Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may be at play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Brooks neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Soft Health and Healing Clinic, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that tested just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates nerve roots was reported to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic. Your Brooks chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven means to produce these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge two forms of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and diminishing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Brooks neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Soft Health and Healing Clinic, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy cared for with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She had 24 visits in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Brooks neck pain and Brooks arm pain relief.
