Carrolltown Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its role. Everything fills a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in treating the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They’re needed. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats many Carrolltown neck pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is recently found to be particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation follows The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to manage neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from a big C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction delivered pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more helpful at returning 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 ease the pain and disability part. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is positive and has its role in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further stated that neck stretching is one of the most helpful physical therapy interventions.  Static and diagonal active stretching were effective at reducing 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 indicating positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to decrease neck pain.
