Fort Wayne Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

August 10, 2021

Everything has its place. Everything fills a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in managing the relief of the pain, disability and range of motion loss. They’re needed. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc takes care of many Fort Wayne neck pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly found to be particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc utilizes The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to ease neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 cervical spine radiculopathy patients, Cox® flexion distraction delivered pain reduction in 13.2 treatments (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more effective at enhancing cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without affecting pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help relieve the pain and disability part. Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in the treatment of neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further reported that neck stretching is a most helpful physical therapy intervention.  Static and diagonal active stretching were successful at reducing neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly showed increases at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study demonstrating positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping up with the neck pain relief studies, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc makes sure to present benefits of a variety of ways to decrease neck pain.
