Neck pain is a common
condition bringing patients to
our Richmond chiropractic clinic! Johnson Chiropractic finds
that chronic neck pain is a prevalent problem
today. Whether the neck pain is non-specific or chronic, Johnson Chiropractic
is ready to help find some neck pain relief with a Richmond chiropractic treatment
plan involving spinal manipulation and exercise.
EXERCISE OR MANUAL THERAPY…OR BOTH?
Neck pain treatment options flourish.
One popular approach is manual therapy. (Johnson Chiropractic
uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation.) Another tactic
is exercise. A third is mixing the two. A new
study compared manual therapy, exercise or placebo. Manual therapy by itself
improved perceived neck pain more quickly than exercise.
Therapeutic exercise decreased disability faster
than manual therapy. (1) A further study compared manual therapy plus exercise to exercise
by itself over 4 weeks. Manual therapy with
exercise increased short- and medium-term neck pain more
effectively than exercise alone. (2) Johnson Chiropractic has found
that patient participation enhances clinical outcomes,
too. Merging the most valuable therapies
for neck pain relief is the way to go.
COX® TECHNIC AND EXERCISE FOR NECK PAIN RELIEF
Johnson Chiropractic follows the research.
Research demonstrated that a safe, gentle type
of manual manipulation, Cox® Technic, decreased cervical spine
intradiscal pressures. (3) In
the clinical comparison study of Cox® flexion distraction alone to
exercise only for neck pain to the combination of the two
that using both was favorable.
(4) Cox® Technic flexion distraction for neck pain relief eased
pain in a mean of 13.2 visits in a report on cervical spine
radiculopathy patients. (5) Johnson Chiropractic realizes that
Richmond neck pain patients are anxious to help
themselves by doing recommended neck exercises as
well as making their chiropractic treatment visits.
