New Roads Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

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 relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

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.
