Oxford Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an ordinary condition bringing patients into our Oxford chiropractic clinic! Satterwhite Chiropractic finds that chronic neck pain is a frequent problem today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Satterwhite Chiropractic is prepared to help deliver some relief from the neck pain with a Oxford chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options abound. One popular method is manual therapy. (Satterwhite Chiropractic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is combining both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) Another study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise by itself over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more effectively than exercise by itself. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Using the most effective therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Satterwhite Chiropractic follows the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was beneficial. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Satterwhite Chiropractic realizes that Oxford neck pain patients are anxious to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
