Sandy Springs Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! New studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Sandy Springs neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Cross Chiropractic Center is here to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Sandy Springs back pain are foremost causes of disability globally and here in Sandy Springs. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, effective option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such patients. Chiropractic is described as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and potentially via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is recommended to determine just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We use spinal manipulation daily at Cross Chiropractic Center.

SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION

Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain patients wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such risk was 2.38 times greater in those who received care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors in the US. (2) Your Sandy Springs chiropractor uses specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about modifying her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools and understanding to attain such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Explaining to chronic nonspecific Sandy Springs neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enhances their outcomes. A study comparing therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education to assist their understanding of their condition found that the combination helped more. The combination dropped the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s the goal of care for us at Cross Chiropractic Center: less pain.
