Williamson 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 narrow area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal provided by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may be at play when there is neck pain, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Williamson neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Apple Country Chiropractic, 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 documented just how mobilization and manipulation impacted patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced 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 shown to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Williamson chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic. Your Williamson chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize two types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and lessening disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic strives to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Williamson neck pain and arm pain patients enjoy the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Apple Country Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is used. It’s a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Williamson neck pain and Williamson arm pain relief.
