Does any neck pain sufferer want to get an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Nope! Recent
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Millville
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Wilson Family Chiropractic
is ready to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Millville back pain are primary
causes of disability around the world and here in Millville.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for many sufferers. Chiropractic is explained as care focused
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as inhibiting
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly
via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses.
More research is recommended to figure out
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We utilize spinal manipulation daily at Wilson Family Chiropractic.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated
to reduce the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients seeking relief find that their treatment is escalated
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times greater in those who got care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the United States. (2) Your Millville chiropractor uses
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation,
Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving
pain, a case report of a patient with neurofibromatosis
who experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually applied cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release,
patient education about adjusting her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic
spine pain as well as headache frequency. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools
and understanding to get such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Giving chronic nonspecific Millville
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain boosts 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 decreased the patients’ pain-disability indices,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is
the goal of care for us at Wilson Family Chiropractic: reduced pain.
