Vancouver Neck Pain Responds to Chiropractic Care

Does any neck pain sufferer want to get 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 Vancouver neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to imaging/injections/surgery.  Vancouver Disc Centers is ready to help with that!

EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN

Neck pain alongside Vancouver back pain are leading causes of disability globally and here in Vancouver. Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful option for management of back and neck pain for many sufferers. Chiropractic is described as care centered on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses. More research is recommended to determine just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1) We utilize spinal manipulation daily at Vancouver Disc Centers.

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 higher in those who received care other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors in the United States. (2) Your Vancouver chiropractor delivers specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain relief.

SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF

As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic flexion distraction, helps relieve pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, patient education about adjusting her workplace ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers works one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools and knowledge to get such relief.

PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING

Explaining to chronic nonspecific Vancouver neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand their neck pain enriches 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 helped more. The combination dropped the patients’ pain-disability scores, pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is the goal of care for us at Vancouver Disc Centers: less pain.
