Manahawkin Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is a common condition drawing patients to our Manahawkin chiropractic clinic! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here to help deliver some relief from the neck pain with a Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options flourish. One popular method is manual therapy. (Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is combining the two. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) An additional research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over a month. Manual therapy with exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise alone. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center has observed that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the better option.


Manahawkin Chiropractic Center goes with the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle type of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that using both was beneficial. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center realizes that Manahawkin neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
