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.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
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 observed
that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes,
too. Combining the most valuable therapies
for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
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.
