Neck pain is a common
condition bringing patients to
our Carrolltown chiropractic clinic! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation finds
that chronic neck pain is a widespread issue
today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
is here to help find some neck pain relief with a Carrolltown chiropractic treatment
plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options flourish.
One common method is manual therapy. (Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach
is exercise. A third is combining 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) A further study assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy plus
exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain more
effectively than exercise alone. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has found
that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes,
too. Merging the most valuable therapies
for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 alone to
exercise only for neck pain to the combination of both
that using both was beneficial.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation finds that
Carrolltown neck pain patients are ready to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
