Oxford Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its place. Everything fills a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in treating the pain, disability and range of motion dysfunction. They’re needed. Satterwhite Chiropractic takes care of many Oxford neck pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly documented as particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 


Satterwhite Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Satterwhite Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to ease neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols produced complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox® flexion distraction produced pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A newer paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more effective at returning cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion despite not affecting pain and disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help address the pain and disability component. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is positive and has its role in addressing neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further described that neck stretching is a most helpful physical therapy intervention.  Static and diagonal active stretching were helpful at reducing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study indicating beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain relief studies, Satterwhite Chiropractic makes sure to present benefits of a variety of ways to reduce neck pain.
