Vancouver Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

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.


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.


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.
