Neck pain is an everyday
condition bringing patients into
our Williamson chiropractic clinic! Apple Country Chiropractic sees
that chronic neck pain is a prevalent issue
today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Apple Country Chiropractic
is prepared to help find some neck pain relief with a Williamson chiropractic treatment
plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options abound.
One common method is manual therapy. (Apple Country Chiropractic
offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach
is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A new
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself
improved perceived neck pain sooner than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise reduced disability sooner
than manual therapy. (1) An additional research
project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with
exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic has found
that patient participation improves clinical outcomes,
too. Combining the most effective therapies
for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Apple Country Chiropractic follows the research.
Research made evident a safe, gentle form
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to
exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two
that combining the two was beneficial.
(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) Apple Country Chiropractic finds that
Williamson neck pain patients are anxious to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as
well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
