The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very small area. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the area of the cervical spine canal provided 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, Easley neck pain along with neck pain or not evolves. Young Chiropractic, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization a la Cox® Technic.
BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION
Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that tested just how mobilization and manipulation influenced 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 relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Easley chiropractic care at Young Chiropractic. Your Easley chiropractor keeps current on the optimal ways to deliver these outcomes.
BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION
Researchers recognize two forms 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, improving range of motion, and lessening disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Young Chiropractic does its best to deliver all the benefit possible to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that incorporates oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Easley neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!
BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF
At Young Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s 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% reduction in pain scores in 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 had 24 visits over 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5) Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Easley neck pain and Easley arm pain relief.
