Manahawkin Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its role. Everything satisfies a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in treating the pain, disability and range of motion dysfunction. They’re needed. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center takes care of many Manahawkin neck pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly documented as especially beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center utilizes The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to ease neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction reduced pain in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A newer paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more effective at returning cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion despite not touching pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help address the pain and disability component. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its place in addressing neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further reported that neck stretching is a most helpful physical therapy intervention.  Static and diagonal active stretching were successful at decreasing neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Additionally, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study indicating beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain relief studies, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to reduce neck pain.
