Joy! Joy! Joy! That’s this time of year…for most of us. For some it can be a pain in the neck. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to help! Chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is gentle, effective, and proven to alleviate pain in a fairly brief period of time. Non-specific neck pain patients reported that they felt improvement in their neck disability after one cervical spine manipulation treatment. (1) Even for cases that more difficult (like the following), The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management delivers pain-relieving results. One patient with neck pain due to narrowing of the cervical spine foramen and radiating arm pain as an effect of a C6-C7 cervical disc herniation reported decreased pain and improved function in 10 visits in 4 weeks. The patient was pain free and fully functional 8 months later. (2) Another patient with a post-surgical C6-7 fusion experiencing neck pain and back pain stated that he had decreased pain (which fell from 8/10 to 3/10) in 12 visits over 3 months with Cox® treatment. (3) A review of published studies on the effectiveness of manual therapy for chronic neck pain, described as a safe and less painful method to alleviate chronic neck pain, proposed that manipulative therapy lessens 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 except for certain types of neck pain patients: only 39% of patients were proposed to continue 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, radiating 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 daily! We are ready to help each one find a little more 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 lessening and better strength of cervical spine flexor and extensor muscles as well as scapular. (6) To improve neck pain and disability effects, a study tested and discovered that isometric exercises significantly lessened neck disability index scores after 4 weeks for cervical spondylosis patients. (7) These are simple exercises that do not take long to do or to have a positive effect on neck pain. So good!
