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.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
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.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Satterwhite Chiropractic goes with 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.
