Neck pain is an ordinary
condition bringing patients to
our Plainville chiropractic clinic! Layden Chiropractic finds
that chronic neck pain is a frequent issue
nowadays. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Layden Chiropractic
is prepared to help find some relief
from the neck pain with a Plainville chiropractic treatment
plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options abound.
One popular method is manual therapy. (Layden Chiropractic
uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic
is exercise. A third is combining both. A recent
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself
improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise reduced disability sooner
than manual therapy. (1) A further research
project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
by itself over 4 weeks. Manual therapy plus
exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Layden Chiropractic has observed
that patient participation improves clinical outcomes,
too. Combining the most effective therapies
for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Layden Chiropractic goes with the research.
Research made evident a safe, gentle type
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped cervical spine
intradiscal pressures. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to
exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two
that combining the two was valuable.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Layden Chiropractic realizes that
Plainville neck pain patients are ready to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as
well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
