Fort Wayne Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation10/20/2020The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses many important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very narrow area. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight 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 come into play when there is neck pain, but for this article, we’re looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, Fort Wayne neck pain with or without arm pain evolves. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic. BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION Both manipulation and mobilization are modes of treatment for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that tested just how manipulation and mobilization influenced patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that they both enhanced these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Additionally, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was shown to relieve pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the objectives of Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven ways to deliver these outcomes. BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION Researchers recognize two types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were effective in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and diminishing disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for enhancing function and range of motion. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion natural to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! Fort Wayne neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

(4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain stated relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up.
