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.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
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.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
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.
