Williamson Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its place. Everything fills a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in managing the relief of the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They’re needed. Apple Country Chiropractic treats many Williamson neck pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is recently found to be especially beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Apple Country Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Apple Country Chiropractic utilizes The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to manage neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols produced complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 cervical spine radiculopathy patients, Cox® flexion distraction reduced pain in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation of stretching to the plan was more effective at enhancing cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without touching pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help address the pain and disability part. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in addressing neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further reported that neck stretching is one of the most effective physical therapy interventions.  Static and diagonal active stretching were effective at decreasing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study suggesting beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Apple Country Chiropractic makes sure to share benefits of various ways to decrease neck pain.
