Neck pain is an ordinary
condition bringing patients into
our Vancouver chiropractic clinic! Vancouver Spine Care Centre sees
that chronic neck pain is a widespread problem
today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Vancouver Spine Care Centre
is prepared to help find some relief
from the neck pain with a Vancouver chiropractic treatment
plan incorporating spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options are plentiful.
One common approach is manual therapy. (Vancouver Spine Care Centre
uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another approach
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 sooner than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise lessened disability faster
than manual therapy. (1) An additional study assessed manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
alone over a month. Manual therapy with
exercise improved short- and medium-term neck pain more
effectively than exercise alone. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre has found
that patient participation boosts clinical outcomes,
too. Merging the most valuable therapies
for neck pain relief is the better option.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Vancouver Spine Care Centre follows the research.
Research made evident a safe, gentle type
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine
intradiscal pressures. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction only to
exercise alone for neck pain to the combination of the two
that combining the two was advantageous.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a study of cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Vancouver Spine Care Centre realizes that
Vancouver neck pain patients are ready to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as
well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
