New Roads Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing moving structure. It not only supports the weight of the skull, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very narrow area. A little irritation of a nerve may cause a little 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 come into play when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, New Roads neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. New Roads Chiropractic Center, too, rises to the occasion to reduce 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 studied just how manipulation and mobilization impacted patients with neck pain of all types (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion irritates 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 objectives of New Roads chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center. Your New Roads chiropractor keeps current on the research-proven 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 successful in this study for decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and decreasing disability due to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is reported to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center strives 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 joining 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! New Roads neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

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

At New Roads Chiropractic Center, Cox® Technic is implemented. it is the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a study of 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman dealing 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 combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for New Roads neck pain and New Roads arm pain relief.
