Richmond Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain: Exercise and Spinal Manipulation

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.


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.


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.
