Richmond Neck Pain Helped by Stretching

Everything has its place. Everything fills a need. In managing neck pain, stretching and spinal mobilization have their roles in managing the relief of the pain, disability and range of motion dysfunction. They’re needed. Johnson Chiropractic treats many Richmond neck pain sufferers to return their lost range of motion due to pain. Stretching is newly found to be particularly beneficial and can be a helpful adjunct to the chiropractic treatment plan. 

BENEFITS OF ADDING STRETCHING TO NECK PAIN TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Johnson Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation and mobilization, nutrition, exercise, and research-suggested stretching in the general treatment plan for neck pain be it non-specific mechanical neck pain or cervical spine radiculopathy. Johnson Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System for Spinal Pain Management to address neck pain. [[A|In one]17] study, Cox® Technic protocols delivered total resolution of the patient’s subjective pain from 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 (range 6 to 37). (2) A recent paper reports that for non-specific mechanical neck pain, the incorporation of stretching to the plan was more helpful at improving 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 ease the pain and disability part. Adding stretching and active cervical range of motion exercise is positive and has its role in treating neck pain. A well-rounded treatment plan for neck pain relief is important! Another research project further stated that neck stretching is one of the most successful physical therapy interventions.  Static and diagonal active stretching were helpful at reducing neck disability and improving cervical spine range of motion. Additionally, cervical range of motion values significantly showed increases at 4 and 6 to 8 weeks [[post-after the ]59] study indicating beneficial long-term effects of stretching for neck pain, disability, and function. (4) Keeping abreast of the neck pain relief studies, Johnson Chiropractic makes sure to share benefits of a variety of ways to reduce neck pain.
