West Palm Beach Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its place. Everything satisfies a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their places in treating the pain, disability and range of motion dysfunction. They’re needed. Chiropractic Care takes care of many West Palm Beach neck pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly found to be particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Chiropractic Care incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the overall treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Chiropractic Care utilizes The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to address neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols produced complete resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from 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 (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition of stretching to the plan was more helpful at enhancing cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges of motion without affecting pain and disability. (3) That’s where spinal manipulation and mobilization come into play. They help ease the pain and disability part. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is beneficial and has its role in addressing 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 effective at decreasing neck disability and increasing cervical spine range of motion. Further, cervical range of motion values significantly increased at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study indicating beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain relief studies, Chiropractic Care makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to decrease neck pain.
