Oxford Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very narrow space. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may influence when there is neck pain, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Oxford neck pain along with neck pain or not evolves. Satterwhite Chiropractic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the form of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how mobilization and manipulation affected patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Additionally, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was reported to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of Oxford chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic. Your Oxford chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the optimal means to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers acknowledge a couple types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and lessening disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic strives to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Oxford neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Satterwhite Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is used. it is a gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% drop in pain scores after a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Oxford neck pain and Oxford arm pain relief.
