Plainville Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating 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 space. 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 created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other factors also may influence when neck pain occurs, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Plainville neck pain along with neck pain or not evolves. Layden Chiropractic, too, rises to the occasion to decrease 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 documented just how manipulation and mobilization affected 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 shown to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Plainville chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic. Your Plainville chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven means 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 successful in this study for reducing pain, increasing range of motion, and lessening disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Layden Chiropractic strives to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so uses Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by joining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, and a combination of them all! Plainville neck pain and arm pain patients appreciate the positive clinical outcome!

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

At Layden Chiropractic, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s 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 was seen in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic blends the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for Plainville neck pain and Plainville arm pain relief.
