West Palm Beach Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain Involves Oscillatory Manipulation

The cervical spine is an amazing motion-appreciating structure. It not only supports the weight of the head, it also houses a variety of important structures like the spinal cord and its nerves in a very narrow space. A slight irritation of a nerve may cause a slight bit of pain or a great amount of pain depending on the size of the cervical spine canal created by the cervical spine vertebral bodies. (Other reatures also may influence when there is neck pain, but for this article, we are looking at the spinal structure.) When there is pain-producing irritation, West Palm Beach neck pain with or without arm pain arises. Chiropractic Care, too, rises to the occasion to reduce that pain with gentle, oscillatory mobilization in the style of Cox® Technic.

BENEFITS OF MOBILIZATION AND MANIPULATION

Both manipulation and mobilization are treatment methods for neck pain relief. A Cochrane review of published randomized control trials that documented just how manipulation and mobilization influenced patients with neck pain of all stages (acute, subacute and chronic) found that  they both improved these patients’ clinical outcomes like pain, function, disability, and quality of life. (1) Further, neural mobilization with manual cervical traction for cervical spine radiculopathy in which a space-occupying lesion bothers nerve roots was shown to reduce pain and improve neck disability, range of motion and even deep flexor endurance. (2) Such clinical outcomes are the goals of West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor keeps up-to-date on the research-proven ways to deliver these outcomes.

BENEFITS OF OSCILLATORY MOBILIZATION

Researchers recognize a couple types of mobilization and manipulation: static or sustained and oscillatory or motion-driven. Oscillatory or motion-combined mobilization and sustained stretch mobilization were successful in this study for decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and decreasing disability related to cervical spine radiculopathy. However, oscillatory mobilization is described to be superior for improving function and range of motion. (3) Chiropractic Care does its best to deliver all the potential benefit to our cervical radiculopathy neck-related arm pain patients and so utilizes Cox® Technic flexion distraction that involves oscillatory motion by combining long-y distraction with range of motion normal to the cervical spine: flexion, extension, lateral bending, rotation, as well as a combination of them all! West Palm Beach neck pain and arm pain patients embrace the positive clinical outcome!

BENEFITS OF COX® TECHNIC FOR NECK PAIN AND ARM PAIN RELIEF

At Chiropractic Care, Cox® Technic is implemented. It’s the gentle, safe treatment protocol for neck pain and arm pain relief. In a report on 39 patients with cervical arm pain radiculopathy treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction, there was a 41% decrease in pain scores in a mean of 13.8 visits. (4) A 51 year old woman suffering with 2 years of left arm pain reported relief after the first visit. She was treated 24 times in 6 months and was symptom-free at 1 year follow-up. (5)  Cox® Technic combines the best of both oscillatory manipulation and mobilization for West Palm Beach neck pain and West Palm Beach arm pain relief.
