Does any neck pain sufferer look forward to
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! Recent
studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such New Roads
neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. New Roads Chiropractic Center
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside New Roads back pain are leading
causes of disability around the world and here in New Roads.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, helpful
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care focused
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is explained as hindering
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly
via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses.
More research is called upon to figure out
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We utilize spinal manipulation every day at New Roads Chiropractic Center.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients wanting relief find that their treatment is escalated
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times higher in those who received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the United States. (2) Your New Roads chiropractor uses
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation,
Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving
pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release,
patient education about modifying her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic
spine pain and headache frequency. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools
and understanding to get such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Explaining to chronic nonspecific New Roads
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enhances their outcomes. A study comparing
therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education
to assist their understanding of their condition
found that the combination was more impactful.
The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is
the goal of care for us at New Roads Chiropractic Center: reduced pain.
