Does any neck pain sufferer enjoy
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is done by chiropractors - may help such Tonawanda
neck pain patients avert treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Tonawanda back pain are foremost
causes of disability around the world and here in Tonawanda.
Chiropractic is being reported as a safe, effective
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such
patients. Chiropractic is explained as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions with spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is explained as hindering
back and neck pain partly by spine related mechanisms and possibly
via peripheral mechanisms that regulate inflammatory pain responses.
More research is recommended to figure out
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We use spinal manipulation every day at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is demonstrated
to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients seeking relief find that their treatment is heightened
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times higher in those who received care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation decreased the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Tonawanda chiropractor delivers
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, helps relieve
pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis
who experienced headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation together with myofascial release,
patient education about modifying her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care reduced her neck and thoracic
spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to give him/her the tools
and understanding to attain such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Giving chronic nonspecific Tonawanda
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enhances their outcomes. A study comparing
therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education
to assist their understanding of their condition
found that the combination helped more.
The combination reduced the patients’ pain-disability scores,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is
the goal of care for us at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation: less pain.
