Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. Recent
studies are showing that receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Fort Wayne
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Fort Wayne back pain are foremost
causes of disability around the world and here in Fort Wayne.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, helpful
option for management of back and neck pain for many such
patients. Chiropractic is described as care focused
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and potentially
via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses.
More research is called upon to determine
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We utilize spinal manipulation daily at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times greater in those who got care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor delivers
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation,
Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving
pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release,
patient education about adjusting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic
spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools
and understanding to attain such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Giving chronic nonspecific Fort Wayne
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain boosts their outcomes. A study comparing
therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education
to help them understand their condition
found that the combination was more impactful.
The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That’s
the goal of care for us at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc: less pain.
