Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Sandy Springs Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

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 importance 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.
