Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Plainville Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections form one spine, so it’s logical that treating one area might affect another. So fascinating. So newly published! Layden Chiropractic likes new research, and this new research presents that treating the thoracic spine positively influences the status of the cervical spine. Layden Chiropractic is completely in favor of the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When conditions of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved, Plainville neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may involve neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Such diseases of the cervical spine may trigger other issues, too. For example, patients who have cervical spine spinal cord disease have 3 times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are likely to have a history of a cardiovascular event and exhibit C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another interesting report of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease involving cervical spinal cord compression – found that patients evaluated the quality of their care based on satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, emphasize the significance of telling patients what to expect to boost satisfaction: At 12 months following surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be improved (37%), may be the same (55%), or may decline (7%). (2) Honesty is the best policy in life and in doctor-patient interactions. Layden Chiropractic shares its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes as well as the course of healing to be expected on day one. (ex: “Some days will be better than others as you heal. Healing comes when the good days begin to exceed the poor ones.”) Plainville chiropractic care with its gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – enhances the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be very gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to ease cervical spine pain and improve disability. A current article describes improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients who have cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most reported by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Neighboring cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that beneficial two-for-one effect again.
