Carrolltown Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

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.


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.


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.
