Vancouver Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

Neck pain is an ordinary condition drawing patients into our Vancouver chiropractic clinic! Vancouver Disc Centers sees that chronic neck pain is a widespread problem today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Vancouver Disc Centers is ready to help find some relief from the neck pain with a Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.


Neck pain treatment options are plentiful. One common approach is manual therapy. (Vancouver Disc Centers uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A new study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself enhanced perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise. Therapeutic exercise lessened disability sooner than manual therapy. (1) An additional research project assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise alone over a month. Manual therapy plus exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain better than exercise by itself. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers has found that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes, too. Combining the most valuable therapies for neck pain relief is the way to go.


Vancouver Disc Centers follows the research. Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle form of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine intradiscal pressures. (3) In the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two that combining the two was advantageous. (4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief relieved pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients. (5) Vancouver Disc Centers finds that Vancouver neck pain patients are ready to help themselves by doing recommended neck exercises in addition to making their chiropractic treatment visits.
