Everything has its place. Everything fills
a need. In treating neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization
have their roles in treating the pain,
disability and range of motion loss. They are
needed. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation takes care of many Tonawanda neck
pain sufferers to restore their lost range of motion due to pain.
Stretching is newly documented as especially
beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan.
BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization,
nutrition, exercise, and research-recommended stretching in the
general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific
mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation follows
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 due to
a big 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 recent
paper states that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the addition
of stretching to the plan was more helpful at returning
cervical spine motions of extension, right rotation and lateral flexion ranges
of motion despite not affecting pain and
disability. (3) That is where spinal manipulation and mobilization
come into play. They help relieve the pain and disability component.
Including stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is
positive and has its place in addressing neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another study further reported
that neck stretching is one of the most effective physical
therapy interventions. Static and
diagonal active stretching were effective at reducing
neck disability and improving 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
positive long-term effects of stretching for neck pain,
disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain
relief studies, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation makes sure to present
benefits of various ways to decrease neck pain.
