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
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.
