NECK PAIN THIS TIME OF YEAR?! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc IS HERE TO HELP!

As much as the holiday season brings joy, for some it is a pain in the neck. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to help! Chiropractic care at our Fort Wayne chiropractic clinic is gentle, effective, and proven to alleviate pain in a reasonably brief timeframe. Non-specific neck pain patients reported that they felt that their neck disability was improved after one cervical spine manipulation treatment. (1) Even for more difficult cases (like the following), The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management delivers pain-relieving outcomes. A patient with cervical spine foraminal narrowing and radiating arm pain due to a C6-C7 cervical disc herniation reported decreased pain and improved function in 10 treatments over 4 weeks. The patient was without pain and fully functional 8 months later. (2) Another patient with a post-surgical C6-7 fusion experiencing neck pain and back pain reported decreased pain (which fell from 8/10 to 3/10) in 12 visits in 3 months with Cox® treatment. (3) A review of published papers on the effectiveness of manual therapy for chronic neck pain, depicted to be a safe and less painful method to ease chronic neck pain, concluded that manipulative therapy decreases the degree of chronic neck pain and neck disability. (4) And most patients don’t have to undergo care ‘forever’. A recent study stated that chiropractors do not recommend continued care apart from certain neck pain patients: only 39% of patients were recommended for care beyond 4 weeks with long duration of neck pain being the strongest guide for continued care. (5) Our Cox® Technic treatment plan for cervical spine pain is gentle and effective for Fort Wayne neck pain whether it’s acute or chronic, going into the shoulder or down the arm or centralized to the neck. This time of year, neck pain patients walk into Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc every day! We are ready to help each one re-discover the JOY of the season!

 

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise those Neck Muscles!

Cervical spine pain patients who want sustained Fort Wayne pain relief often get it once they add exercise. A simple elastic band exercise program was shown to be effective for non-specific neck pain decrease and improved strength of cervical spine flexor, extensor and scapular muscles. (6) To improve neck pain and disability effects, a study found that isometric exercises significantly lowered neck disability index scores after 4 weeks for cervical spondylosis patients. (7) These are easy exercises that do not take long to do or to have a positive effect on neck pain. So good!
