Neck pain is a common
condition bringing patients to
our Sandy Springs chiropractic clinic! Cross Chiropractic Center sees
that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem
nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Cross Chiropractic Center
is prepared to help deliver some neck pain relief with a Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment
plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options flourish.
One common approach is manual therapy. (Cross Chiropractic Center
uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic
is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A new
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone
improved perceived neck pain sooner than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise decreased disability faster
than manual therapy. (1) A further research
project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy plus
exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center has observed
that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes,
too. Combining the most effective therapies
for neck pain relief is the better option.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Cross Chiropractic Center goes with the research.
Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to
exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two
that using both was favorable.
(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) Cross Chiropractic Center realizes that
Sandy Springs neck pain patients are anxious to help
themselves by doing suggested neck exercises as
well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
