Everything has its role. Everything fills
a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization
have their roles in managing the relief of the pain,
disability and range of motion loss. They are
needed. Wilson Family Chiropractic treats many Millville neck
pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain.
Stretching is recently documented as particularly
beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan.
BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Wilson Family Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization,
nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the
overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific
mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Wilson Family Chiropractic follows
Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to treat neck
pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered
total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain due to
a large C5-C6 disc herniation. (1) In a retrospective study of 39 patients with cervical radiculopathy, Cox®
flexion distraction reduced pain
in 13.2 treatments (ranging from 6 to 37). (2) A newer
paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation
of stretching to the plan was more helpful at returning
cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges
of motion without touching pain and
disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization
come into play. They help address the pain and disability part.
Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is
beneficial and has its place in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further described
that neck stretching is a most effective physical
therapy intervention. Static and
diagonal active stretching were helpful at decreasing
neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Additionally,
cervical range of motion values significantly increased
at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study demonstrating
beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain,
disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain
relief studies, Wilson Family Chiropractic makes certain to present
benefits of various ways to reduce neck pain.
