Neck pain is a common condition drawing patients into our Easley chiropractic clinic! Young Chiropractic finds that chronic neck pain is a frequent issue nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Young Chiropractic is prepared to help find some relief from the neck pain with a Easley chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options abound. One popular approach is manual therapy. (Young Chiropractic offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing both. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy alone enhanced perceived neck pain sooner than exercise. Therapeutic exercise decreased disability earlier than manual therapy. (1) A further research project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise alone. (2) Young Chiropractic has found that patient participation improves clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Young Chiropractic follows the research. Research revealed that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased intradiscal pressures in the cervical spine. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of both that using both was favorable. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Young Chiropractic finds that Easley neck pain patients are anxious to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
