Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation10/06/2020Neck pain is an everyday condition drawing patients into our Fort Wayne chiropractic clinic! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees that chronic neck pain is a widespread issue today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to help deliver some relief from the neck pain with a Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise. EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH? Neck pain treatment options abound. One popular approach is manual therapy. (Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc offers gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A recent study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself enhanced perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise decreased disability faster than manual therapy. (1) A further research project compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc has found that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Using the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the better option. COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc goes with the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle type of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, dropped cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of both that combining the two was beneficial. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc finds that Fort Wayne neck pain patients are anxious to help themselves by doing suggested neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
