The spine. Its five sections make up
one spine, so it’s logical that treating one section
might affect another. So fascinating. So newly
published! Cross Chiropractic Center has a thing about new
research, and this new research indicates that treating the thoracic spine positively affects
the status of the cervical spine. Cross Chiropractic Center is completely in
favor of the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When issues of
cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are concerned,
Sandy Springs neck pain patients will be, too.
CERVICAL SPINE PAIN
Cervical spine pain may involve neck pain as
well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Cervical spine
related diseases like this may elicit
other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine
spinal cord disease have three times more incidence of having
cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are likely to have a history of a cardiovascular event and show
C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another interesting
study of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a
progressive spine disease concerning cervical spinal cord compression
– discovered that patient evaluation of the quality of care they received comes down to satisfaction.
The research findings, therefore, reiterate the significance
of explaining to patients what to expect to increase
satisfaction: At 12 months after surgery for neck degenerative
myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be better
(37%), may remain the same (55%), or may deteriorate
(7%). (2) Honesty is the best policy in life and in doctor-patient relationships.
Cross Chiropractic Center shares its proposed treatment’s expected
outcomes as well as the course of healing to be expected on day
one. (ex: “Some days will be better than others as you
heal. Healing happens when the good days start
to exceed the poor ones.”) Sandy Springs chiropractic care including gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – enhances
the odds of good days and more good days!
THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN
Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite
gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical
spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to improve
cervical spine pain and improve disability. A recent
article tells of improvements in pain, disability, cervical
spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients with cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes
were most stated by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3)
Adjacent cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of
each other’s care! Amazing! There is that beneficial
two-for-one effect again.
